The Chazan Gallery is presenting Thirteen Ways Of Looking At A Blackbird, an exhibition of works by Johnny Adimando, Austin Ballard, Peter Croteau, Jonathan Palmer, Justin Sorensen and Raine Vasquez, from January 22 to February 11, 2015. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Thursday, January 22, from 5:00 - 7:00. The public is invited.
Johnny Adimando’s practice is defined by a focus on intense detail, technical proficiency, and the harmonious mixture of various mediums. His work does not subscribe to one particular convention; bridging dedicated engagement with various print media processes into photography, sculpture, and video. It has been described by contemporary curator Robert P. Stack as “art that speaks to a constantly shifting and material reality.” Johnny Adimando is currently part-time faculty in the departments of Painting and Printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. He has also served on the Printmaking faculty at the Montserrat College of Art and Bucknell University. Adimando earned his BFA (’05) from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University and MFA (’09) from the Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is held by public and private collections including Philadelphia Free Library, Samek Art Gallery at Bucknell University, and Tower InvestmentsGallery in Philadelphia, PA. His work also appears in a multitude of national print exchange projects and flat file programs.
