Current Exhibit

Intimate Generations exhibit at Kohl Gallery

Kohl Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition, Intimate Generations, curated by Gallery Director and Curator Tara Gladden, on view January 29-February 29, 2020. A reception will be held on Tuesday, February 18, from 4:30-6:30pm featuring in-gallery artist talks and performances of original dances made in response to works on display by Washington College dance composition students.

Intimate Generations features contemporary artists working broadly around themes of family connection. Artists chanan delivuk, Roxana Alger Geffen, Aimee Gilmore, Khánh H. Lê, Kalen Na’il Roach, and Aaron Wax reimagine family narratives, illuminating and re-envisioning lives and identities. Selected works communicate an array of contradictory emotions, demonstrating how each person’s relationship with their family is a uniquely complicated issue. Whether we feel close or not, we get along or we don’t, we are intimately connected. We can create distance if necessary, but it’s difficult to escape formative memories, ancestral bonds, and DNA. Individual expressions of love, joy, longing, heartache, connection, and critique all live equally within Intimate Generations.

Special additional programming includes the inaugural Chestertown Art Crawl on Saturday, February 22 from 10am-5pm, a town-wide celebration of family, art, food and culture for which the exhibit acts as a conceptual anchor, along with companion exhibit, Intimate Generations, Too curated by Carla Massoni at MassoniArt in downtown Chestertown. The day will also feature exhibits and programs at the studio of WC Art Professor Julie Wills (11am-2pm) on Washington College’s campus as well as a host of downtown venues including RiverArts (all locations), Sumner Hall, Heron Point Art Gallery, The Book Plate, The Garfield Center for the Arts, Robert Ortiz Studios, The Artists’ Gallery, Tish Fine Arts Plus, Casa Carmen Wine House and The Retriever bar/restaurant.
