Norte Maar is pleased to return to 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery with a major exhibition titled Ways and Means: a new look at process and materials in art. The exhibition marks the fourth exhibition curated by Jason Andrew and organized by Norte Maar for 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery (previous exhibitions have included: Jack Tworkov: A Retrospective; To be a Lady: Forty-Five Women in the Arts; between a place and candy: new work in pattern, repetition, and motif). Ways and Means will open with a reception on Monday, July 18 from 6–8pm. The show continues through Friday, October 7. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8am–6pm.
Curated by Jason Andrew, Ways and Means offers an eclectic group of 25 artists who through a combination of their process and materials, challenge traditional means. More concerned with the ways and means than the why and how, these artists are linked to an aesthetic where product is not the principal focus, where process is not the means but an end, and where materials are far from conventional, moving beyond paint and brush, stone and chisel, clay and wheel, thread and loom.
