Start Fresh

Start Fresh is a group exhibition about clarity, finesse, energy, surprise, nature, healing and defying expectations in art. The exhibit brings together startling and fresh works of art by professional artists, alongside that of participants from seven arts and health programs that engage the community in creative dialogue.

A passionate concern for nature pervades the work of included artists: Polly Apfelbaum, Lindsay Feuer, Susan Hockaday, Natalie Jeremijenko, Melissa Marks, and Scott Wright. To celebrate surprise and renewal in art, students ages 15 to 102 from the Arts Council’s Arts in Healthcare programs have created bold prints as an homage to Mary Granville Delany, an 18th Century botanical artist who began her life’s work at the age of 72.

In her Curator’s Statement, Eva Mantell says, “The six artists selected for this exhibit connect to the themes of renewal and growth in diverse ways. From drawing to painting, photography, ceramics, printmaking, performance art, biotechnology and environmental intervention, the range of media rewinds to art’s origins, and fast-forwards into new technologies, as needed. The artists in this exhibit are trained and skilled. They have finesse and a light touch, and keep their art fresh, honest and relevant.”
