Art Exhibition at 44MAIN!

May 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am May 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

44MAIN is pleased to announce an exhibition of collage works by local artist Kristen Lynn Clancy, on view through our storefront window.

Kristen Lynn Clancy is an artist and designer located in the Hudson Valley. Her assemblages are influenced by her intuition for design: she shuffles through textures, colors, patterns, and found-objects to seek out their most dynamic qualities. Her collages are idyllic, serene, imagined scenes, that unearth an intimate relationship between nature and everyday life. The works feature twigs, feathers, stones, and dried flora, all collected on her rambles through the woods. These found materials are interspersed with images of functional objects –a rocking chair, a set table, lamp, and mirror that await the arrival of a visitor. By giving her furniture a natural landscape, Kristen explores the concept of immersing our own lives in the beauties of the natural world. 

For inquiries, and to see more of Clancy’s work here: www.kristenlynnstudios.com.

Clancy’s exhibition came about as a result of “A Gift to Main Street,” 44MAIN’S ongoing open call for artwork to be displayed in our storefront window. In accordance with our mission, and while our regular pop-up rentals are on pause, we want to continue to offer our storefront to our local community as a positive space — a place of solace, support, and creativity in these difficult times. We are asking for submissions for a dynamic but on topic window display that imaginatively addressed our themes of “stories of connection” and “the restorative power of nature.” For more information about the open call, email 44MAIN at info@44main.net.
