Murtaugh’s New Work in CAW Exhibition


"Aequalis: Blueblood and Fusion" (2014) by Rebecca Murtaugh

Alluring Repulsions,” an exhibition of new sculptures by Associate Professor of Art Rebecca Murtaugh, will be on display March 7 – April 3 at Hilles Gallery at the Creative Arts Workshop (CAW).  The show will open with a reception on March 7, from 5 – 7 p.m., at the gallery, located at 80 Audubon Street in New Haven, Conn.

The exhibition was awarded to her as one of two prizewinners in the CAW 2013 juried exhibition “How Simple Can You Get?,” by Robert Storr, dean of the School of Art at Yale University.

In describing her work, Murtaugh said, “My studio practice engages an experimental and playful process with a variety of media that explore the space between sculpture and painting. I am interested in the history of objects and materials for their transformative potential. While I often work within parameters, improvisation and intuition drive my actions in the studio along with a strong desire and consideration of beauty, form and color.”

A catalog will accompany the exhibition with an essay by Casey Ruble titled “In Favor of Buoyancy: The Work of Rebecca Murtaugh.”
