I'm showing in Motion/Less, a two-person exhibition with Meghan Grubb at Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College from 2nd October to 3rd November.
Meghan and I received the Alice C. Cole '42 Studio Project Grant from Wellesley's Art Department in 2015-16. The grant is open to Wellesley alumnae who are practicing artists within 5 years of earning their BA at Wellesley or a graduate degree in fine art.
This exhibition was an exciting opportunitity to return to Wellesley and I am so happy to be able to show my paintings and screenprints alongside Meghan's beautiful work in sculpture and installation.
Here's the short text that accompanies the show at Jewett:
"This two-person exhibition focuses on the work of Meghan Grubb ’05 and Zsofia Schweger ’12, recipients of the 2015–16 Alice C. Cole ’42 Studio Project Grant. Explorations of home and personal space coexist with attened form and tightly controlled color in Zsofia Schweger’s paintings. Her current thinking on stillness and duration as it applies to interior scenes informs her examinations of the way that a static medium can convey a sense of passing time.
Rooted in questions on how a powerful and mysterious non-physical experience might arise out of the physical, Meghan Grubb strives to generate a sense of anxiety and fear, but also a sense of wonder. Through large-scale installations and lyrical sculptures, she maximizes viewers’ physical, sensory, and psychological experiences so that they may be momentarily unhooked from the normative experience of their environment."
Open to the public 10:00 am - 4:00 pm, 7 days a week.
