Esther S White, Kevin Pomerleau, Claire Crews and Sally Clegg present new work in conversation. The four artists, who met at Zea Mays Printmaking, have been building a routine of collaborative thought and curation. Working independently, they have each created new work that in a variety of ways addresses the subjects of touch, permeability, barriers, visualization, and proximity.

Sally Clegg is a visual artist and writer. Sally was awarded an MCC 2018 Artist Fellowship for Drawing & Printmaking. “My goal as an artist is to bear witness to private, protected, or otherwise invisible experiences or forces. My work integrates information from observation with invented content to create and manipulate narrative. I am continuously seeking the intersection of written and visual storytelling, and regularly experiment with utilizing literary tools in my visual practice, such as structural elements used in poetry, comics, and prose.”

Kevin Pomerleau is a printmaker. His work focuses on telling stories through images of the textiles present during pivotal moments of his own life. Pomerleau’s work entices the viewer to peer into his world without actually allowing them to enter, touching on themes of isolation, connection, and the plights of the queer community.

Claire Hawley Crews is a weaver and printmaker. Claire’s work interrogates digital technologies, memory and documentation, intimacy and ambiguity, from a growing technical knowledge of textile craft and intaglio printmaking.
