New Work by Artist Lisa Kellner at MBC’s Hunt Gallery

From November 11 to December 6, 2013, the exhibition “Bringing on the Aither: New Work by Lisa Kellner” will be on view at Mary Baldwin College’s Hunt Gallery.

Kellner card imageAs a long-time New Yorker, Lisa Kellner currently lives and works in Brooklyn, N.Y., and rural Virginia. After receiving a BS in finance and marketing from Boston University in 1987, she continued her undergraduate studies at the School of Visual Arts in New York, focusing on drawing and painting. In 2008, Kellner received an MFA from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University.

She has created and installed room-sized installations and works on paper throughout the United States. Her work has been exhibited at the Bellevue Arts Museum, Wash., the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, N.Y., the Brooklyn Arts Council, N.Y., and the Weatherspoon Museum, N.C., among others. In addition, Kellner has worked with galleries including ADA Gallery, Va., Project 4 Gallery, Washington DC, Bravin Lee Projects, N.Y., and Tarryn Teresa Gallery, La. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Sculpture Magazine. She recently created site responsive installations at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Fla., the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Maine, and Lehman College Art Gallery, N.Y.

“Bringing on the Aither” is comprised of a series of large abstract oil paintings juxtaposed with smaller, precisely painted representational images and sculptured, ethereal objects. The intent is to consider memory and place from multiple viewpoints while addressing the idea of failure and the need to conceal.

Kellner card image_2The ancient Greeks considered aither to be pure essence, a haven where the gods lived; a substance they breathed. Aither was the bright, glowing upper air of heaven, the essence of light…something they aspired to. “Bringing on the Aither” explores reality and memory, and the necessity to conceal or disguise it with something else, the aither. Disparate components, multiple layers, and focused experimentation intermingle on the canvases, and between them, to create a sense of aither.

A reception will be held for the artist from 4:30 to 6 p.m., November 11, in Hunt Gallery. The public is invited to attend.

Hunt Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary work in all media by regionally and nationally recognized artists. The gallery is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, during the college’s academic year. Hunt Gallery’s schedule for the 2013–2014 academic year can be found online .
