McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by the Cynthia-Reeves Projects

The McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC, invited Cynthia-Reeves Projects, of New York City, to organize an exhibition embodying the spirit of connectivity that serves as the basis of our mission to foster connections between artists, community, and the creation of contemporary art through residencies, exhibitions, outreach, and education. The resulting show’s title, Connectivity, evokes this mission in the ways it invokes the implicit concept that ideas and their manifestations share common threads, hinting at the invisible tethering of thought to inspiration and creativity. The exhibit will be on view through June 15, 2013.

Featuring a diverse selection of works representing the convergence of art and science, Connectivity explores the underlying threads of connection found in natural, social, and technological systems. Each of the artists on view demonstrates their vision on the dynamic pursuit of connectedness through his or her unique visual lens.

Exhibiting artists include: Janet Echelman, Yizkah Elyashiv, Beth Galston, Beth Ganz, John Grade, Daniel Kohn, Jonathan Prince, Shuli Sade, George Sherwood, and Claire Watkins, many of whom are featured in the Duke Energy collection here in Charlotte.

Cynthia-Reeves was founded in 1995 in New England and opened their New York gallery in 2003 in Chelsea, the contemporary art district of Manhattan. The Cynthia-Reeves Projects is a forum for off-site and collaborative projects done in concert with partner galleries and non-profit organizations, including museum exhibitions and other platforms that bring our artists’ works to the attention of a broader audience. Due to our strong focus on sculptural works, we are actively involved with public art projects in the United States and abroad, helping to facilitate installations of large-scale works in the public domain. The gallery is a regular exhibitor at art fairs throughout the United States and abroad.
