PROCESS: Exhibit, Receptions, Artists Talks at City Gallery

14 City Gallery Members Part of New Haven Open Studios Events
For artists, process is how they turn paper and graphite into a drawing, clay into a sculpture, light and pixels into a photograph. Everyone’s process is as unique as a fingerprint: their peculiar way of breathing life into inert materials. Nature too has its processes, its metamorphoses and transformations. From a school of fish turning as one to the relentless progress of dreams, everything is in flux. The two kinds of processes weave together. PROCESS shows how artists use their processes like spells to capture some wisp of our changing world.
PROCESS, on view at City Gallery from October 6 - October 29, will feature work by 14 member artists. It is part of New Haven’s Open Studios month, which includes exhibits and events throughout the city. At City Gallery, there will be an Opening Reception on Saturday, October 7, 1-4 PM, a Closing Reception on Sunday, October 29, 1-4 PM, as well as the following Artist Talks:
      Phyllis Crowley & Barbara Harder, Saturday, October 7, 2-3 PM
      Jennifer Davies, Saturday, October 14, 2-3 PM
      Roberta Friedman & Sheila Kaczmarek, Sunday, October 29, 2-3 PM

City Gallery’s exhibits rotate on a monthly schedule. In addition to shows of members’ work, the gallery occasionally hosts work by guest artists that helps to make New Haven a vibrant regional center for the arts, such as Spaces Within, the 2023 Summer Invitational featuring artists Susan Clinard, Shaunda Holloway, Linda Mickens, and Karen Klugman’s Upper State Street 1978: At the Height of Its Decline in 2022.
In an effort to showcase the diversity and talent of the local arts community, City Gallery offers scholarship program that provides full gallery membership for two years to emerging artists who may not have the resources to become a part of a collective, member-run gallery.
All members of City Gallery are carefully selected for their accomplishments as artists, their ability to commit to maintaining a successful member-run gallery, and their fit with the group. All of the artists have distinguished resumes and have exhibited widely, and many also teach in the New Haven artistic community.
PROCESS is part of a month-long Open Studios event in New Haven. It is one of several similar events taking place in October, including Erector Square Open Studios; 6th Dimension city-wide Afrofuturist arts festival; Artspace Fall Exhibition “Blocks and Bridges: World Building in New Haven;” Amplify the Arts Festival, Eli Whitney Museum Barn; Marlin Works Open Studios; Westville Art Walk.
