what goes around … at nahcotta

nahcotta_show

Oh! Get it… oh… circles… anyway. These are 7 of 34 pieces in Nahcotta‘s latest exhibition, “What Goes Around”.  Yes, 34 artists – many of whom I’m slightly obsessed with – have created 12″ circular pieces of art. From Jeremy Miranda, to Jennifer Davis, to Leah Giberson {who hinted about this piece during our podcast interview a few weeks ago} – the roster is just fantastic! This was the inspiration for the show:

Choosing a particular selection of 34 artists, predominantly from the gallery’s significant stable, Nahcotta challenged them with the task of creating work on a twelve-inch circular panel. Since Greek antiquity and making resurgence throughout the Renaissance, circular works of art, called “tondi” (“tondo” when singular) have been made in architecture, sculpture, and paint. Botticelli and Michelangelo, for example, both painted and sculpted more than a few scenes utilizing this form. Deriving from the Italian word “rotondo,” meaning “round,” the shape very much informs the context and narrative of the art itself, so “What Goes Around” promises an incredible range of work launching from the same dimensional foundation.

It’s a gorgeous show, so if you can make it to the artist reception/opening – which is TOMORROW from 5-8pm – well, you should! It will be up from April 1 until May 1, 110 Congress Street, Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Now, if you can’t make it to the show, all of these pieces are available for purchase online… but hurry because a few of them are already SOLD.
