Pentimenti Gallery is pleased to introduce the curatorial talents of Catherine Haggarty in this summer exhibition titled One to the Next. This group exhibition demonstrates a deep understanding of the interconnection between nature, materiality, form, storytelling, people, and culture.
“Since 2017 I have had the great pleasure of co-founding and directing The New York City Crit Club. At first, it began with two young women teaching a class collaboratively. This one class turned to 4 then to 6 and then to 15. Seven years later after a global pandemic turned us all inward - our world opened up creating the possibility to connect with artists all over the globe. When I was asked to curate this show and consider some memorable and important NYC Crit Club Artists to select for this show: One to the Next, it caused a pause simply because of the incredible amount of artists I’ve been inspired to work with.
My selection of Heather Drayzen, Zella Vanié, Raymond Hwang, Karen Rosenkrantz, Kate Sherman, Judy Riola, Cate Holt, and Kyong Kim came to be for their voices and endurance shining through time and obstacles. All these artists have been showing up for their work and their peer group in tremendous ways. Navigating all the decisions and trials that artists must do to find a personal language in their materiality and process."
