CCS’s Center Galleries Presents “Grid List”

The College for Creative Studies’s (CSS) Center Galleries is presenting a new exhibition called “Grid List,” which opens with a public reception on Friday, January 27th, 2012 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. on the Ford Campus located at 201 East Kirby Street in Detroit. The exhibition will run through Saturday, March 3, 2012. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

 “Grid List” presents a new take on Geometric Abstraction with a focus on the individual artist’s idiosyncratic relationship with the grid. Co-organized by artists Mark Sengbusch and Patrick Morrissey, the exhibition includes the work of 16 artists from London, New York, Detroit and Atlanta.

“Grid List explores the influence of the grid on artists. Tracing back the source of geometric abstraction’s past Josef Albers and Sol LeWitt take it to a more personal and direct place,” says Director of Center Galleries Michelle Perron. “Nature, sports, math, science, film, graphic design and video games are just a few of the square wellsprings these artists draw their right angles from. In addition to the artists in the show, there will be "non-art" examples of the grid.”

The exhibition includes recent graduates of CCS: David E. Peterson, Fine Arts ’02 and Mark Sengbusch, Fine Arts ‘02. Other exhibiting artists include: Joseph Bernard – Detroit, Paul Corio - NYC, Nate Ethier - NYC, Francis Farmer – Sussex, England, Stacy Fisher - NYC, Linda Francis - NYC, Hanz Hancock - London, William Hughes – London, Jeffrey Mathews - NYC, Patrick Morrissey – London, Allie Rex – NYC, Karen Schifano - NYC , Ian Swanson - NYC, and Tracy Thomason – NYC.
