"Shift" Online Exhibition
Patrick Craig shows painting in online exhibit at the McLean Project for the Arts
Associate Professor of Art Patrick Craig's painting, "Bamboo Mambo" was selected by Sarah Tanguy for exhibition in 'Shift," an online exhibition at the McLean Project for the Arts
The works in this exhibition focus on the concept of shift, change or exchange, in paradigm, position, direction, tendency, viewpoint, atmosphere, needs, dreams, schedules, interactions, environment, perspective…
The two jurors, Sarah Tanguy, curator and arts writer, and Henry L. Thaggert, collector and art patron, created two separate exhibits, each drawing from the same pool of works. 259 artists applied, most submitting two works, creating a pool both large and diverse. This online exhibition, constructed during the time of COVID-19 when galleries and museums remain largely closed, offers a platform for artists to show works related to this immediate and timely concept. It also offers a window into the process of making an exhibition, and how jurors and curators respond to works of art, shaping a unique vision that comes to life through the choices they make.
