Jessie Fisher, Adjunct Instructor in Foundations Drawing, is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition painter and educator Scott Seebart at Prince Street Gallery, 547 W 27th St, NYC. The exhibition runs from September 5-30 with a closing reception on Saturday September 30, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
This is the couple’s first 2-person exhibition at the gallery featuring paintings in oil and flashe on hand-prepared linen grounds, both rigorous and tender. Long-wrought surfaces showcase Seebart’s expansive library of still-life objects arranged as tabletop apotheosis while Fisher’s portraits, a series of surrogates and doppelgangers, include models, masks, and effigies, sculpted by and of the artist herself.
The artists and educators, who have been painting together for more than 30 years, are currently based in Saint Paul, MN where they are transforming a former church into an art center, painting studio, exhibition site and residency program.
