Matt Harle is Linked in at Heskin Contemporary, opening Feb 19 in Manhattan

Matt Harle will be among the artists participating in a group exhibit opening on Thursday, Feb 19, 6-9pm at Heskin Contemporary, 443 W 37 ST in NYC.
The exhibit Linked; Small Works, Big Ideas is curated by Jennifer Riley and includes work by James Biederman, Erick Johnson, Rebecca Smith, Keiko Narahashi, Kelly Wilson, Marthe Keller, Sue Scott and Russell Roberts.
From the exhibition press release:
This exhibition brings together artists who share a thoughtful, expansive, attitude towards the genres, mediums, and boundaries in which they work.
Much of the work touches on themes related to architecture, interval, and pattern. Many of the artists work in a form or discipline different from that which they initially trained. All priviledge color or the use of paint in collaboration with forms that implicate spaces beyond the physical to include the mental and the emotional. The curatorial impulse for this show stems from the desire to expose the traces of overlapped intentions apparent in works made by artists who step back and forth effortlessly between the languages of two and three dimensional thinking and space making. Some create concrete works and some call attention to a sense of the permeability between space and matter while others who employ an additive process, achieve a poetic sense of accretion and narrative.
The exhibit will run through April 4, 2009.
