Independent Art Projects (IAP) will celebrate the grand opening of its 2,500 square-foot exhibition space at 1315 MASS MoCA Way with a reception and a series of talks by artists and the gallery owners who represent them. The events start Thursday, July 31, and continue throughout the weekend to Saturday, Aug. 2, and Sunday, Aug. 3.
The celebration opens with a reception on July 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. for artists and gallery owners currently exhibiting work at IAP. The reception is held in conjunction with DownStreet Art Thursday festivities in downtown North Adams.
Starting July 31, IAP presents works by Tanya Marcuse and Christopher Russell, represented by Julie Saul Gallery; Shuli Sadé, represented by CYNTHIA-REEVES; Steven Young Lee and Sin-Ying Ho, represented by Ferrin Contemporary.
IAP features art by mid-career and established artists in all media: painting, drawing and print, sculpture and ceramics, and photography and video. The exhibition schedule features ongoing curated projects presented by founding galleries Ferrin Contemporary of Cummington, Mass, and Cynthia-Reeves of New York, N.Y., and Brattleboro, Vt.
In addition, other galleries based in New York and New England are invited to present short-term exhibitions to create a dynamic changing schedule of art and public programming.
