At NIAD: My Rising Special Place, Curated by Mary Mortimer and Dorrie Reid on view through January 29

This is the the seventh show in our new exhibition space NIAD Windows. NIAD Windows is four white walls in the front window bays of the Art Center. The shows can easily be seen from the sidewalk or from a passing automobile.

From Dorrie Reid:
“I’ve been thinking about when I retire. I’ve been thinking about my long-term goals, finding a place to settle down and work on my art. Somewhere I can have quiet time, and no hostility. I’m thinking about finding a place that’s quiet, and moving on to what I want to do in the future. Searching for that place, My Rising Special Place.”

From Mary Mortimer:
“Dorrie was the first artist I met at NIAD. I feel a deep connection with her and her work. We have many parallels in our use of materials. We are both printers using the power of words. We have both moved through many materials fluidly – ceramics, fiber, paint, ink. She crochets and I knit.

Dorrie came up with the title for this show. We’ve chosen work that speaks to this theme, and I’ve added a couple of my own prints. As chance has it, we are on the same wavelength. This, of course, is no surprise!”

This month’s exhibitions are generously sponsored by a NIAD Board Member and a group of NIAD supporters, in recognition of Timothy Buckwalter’s 8 years of excellence in the role of Exhibitions Director at NIAD.
