The Ely Center of Contemporary Art is holding an opening reception for A Wintry Mix: A Medley of Exhibitions and Special Projects on Sunday, December 2nd, from 1 to 3 pm. Click here to RSVP.

This show features five concurrent exhibitions from various artists and runs from December 2, 2018 to January 6, 2019. More information below:

In Formation: Gesture & Geometry is a satellite exhibition that corresponds to the exhibit currently on view at Perspectives Gallery @ Whitney Center in Hamden, CT. Featured artists include Robert Gregson (Orange, CT), Laura Moriarty (Kingston, NY), Ben Parker (Essex, CT), Ken Lovell (Hamden, CT), and Shilo Ratner (Bethany, CT).

3018 A.D. is a solo exhibition featuring Alexis Musinski’s current work. Alexis is an emerging, New Haven based artist who uses her skills in clay slab-building and sewing to create objects that are inspired by her work and life surroundings.

Gender Fools is a solo exhibition featuring Maxim Schmidt’s latest series of figurative paintings as part of his senior exhibition. Maxim is an undergraduate student at Albertus Magnus College who is pursuing a degree in art therapy alongside a double minor in art history and sociology. Also transgender, Maxim is fascinated by gender and social perceptions and uses this fascination as motivation for his work.

Branford based art therapist Briah Luckey will be showing her work, “The Spaces In Between: Monotype Plant Prints on Fabric.” The exhibition explores her biophilic connection to nature through experimentation with printmaking processes using natural, raw materials such as seaweed, leaves, and roots. She will lead a monotype plant printing on fabric workshop inspired by these methods on December 19th from 1-4 pm. Registration and fee details here.

CityScapes, a special ECoCA fundraiser, will feature mixed-media tape paintings by Adam Malec. Adam was an artist-in-residence this past summer during ECoCA A.I.R. ‘18. As an Uber driver, Adam transformed his car into a unique mobile art installation that allowed him to connect with people from all walks of life. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the Ely Center of Contemporary Art - Exhibitions and Community Programs.
