Opening reception Sunday the 17th of February 2-5pm

Oliver Comerford will be exhibiting in a group show in New York titled Distance. Curated by Steve Locke and Betsy Alwin, Distance looks to the physical, chronological, intellectual, emotional, and geographic dimensions that the concept of distance entails. This exhibition brings together the work of alumni from the Skowhegan school of painting. The curators were further inspired by Solmaz Sharif’s poem, Look, which explores consequences that result from perceptions of difference and distance. This exhibition includes works by artists of varying ages, from various cultural backgrounds, who work in various locations around the country and around the world. Although the works in Distance all can be called “works on paper,” the diversity of shapes, sizes, materials and techniques reflects the variety of contemporary art practices encompassed under that single rubric.
