Material World, the first exhibition of the Flinn Gallery's 2020-21 season opened Thursday, September 10 and will be available for view through October 28.

The show features two painters - Leeah Joo of Middlebury, CT and Stephanie Serpick of Brooklyn, NY - and one fiber artist, Jennifer Davies of Branford, CT.

All three artists bring the nuances and richness of materials, such as linens, fabrics, and paper to life through color, composition, and texture.
Behind the physical appearance of folds, layers, and creases, there are hidden narratives that capture the imagination based on what is visible and what is concealed.

Jennifer Davies handmade paper, collage, and woven pieces have a strong physical presence and conjure images from nature such as spider webs, the moon, and hand-crafted items such as books, quilts, and veils.

Leeah Joo’s paintings celebrate the beauty and rich traditions associated with Korean fabrics and include cross-cultural references that imbue the images with added meaning.

In her intimate paintings of unmade beds and crumpled sheets, Stephanie Serpick responds to personal loss and recent political events with artwork that speaks to grief, isolation, and healing.

The exhibition will run from September 10 - October 28, 2020 and is co-curated by Flinn Gallery Committee members, Katy Finnell and Nancy Heller.
