We are pleased to announce an exhibition Fruit by Sally Clegg on June 22(Sat.) & 23(Sun.), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Sally Clegg is a multidisciplinary artist from Pelham Massachusetts with a background in both visual and literary arts. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and her work appears in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library, Hampshire College, Wheaton College, and the University of Michigan. Her most recent solo exhibition, Bundle, was shown at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the spring of 2018, and she is a 2018 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellow in Drawing & Printmaking.
Fruit considers artmaking as an act of self-exploration and play. Using a set of vintage carving tools from Japan, left to the artist by her grandmother but never used, Sally Clegg creates mokuhanga prints based on new experiences with food and landscape. Fruit is a component of her larger project Auto-Affection, an investigation of self-intimacy through reimagining interactions with everyday items.
