Press Release

The New Hampshire Institute of Art is pleased to present "Contemporary Practice," a group exhibition curated by Sam Trioli. The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 18th in the Roger Williams Gallery (77 Amherst Street, Manchester, NH) and will remain on view until Saturday, March 26, 2016. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

"Contemporary Practice" explores present day art making processes in the work of fourteen artists, assembling a survey of painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics and installation. Each in a different fashion, these artists test the boundaries of context, process, and classification of contemporary art. Collectively, they are constructing a landscape of art-marking and production in this moment in art history, and a broader understanding of the momentum of contemporary art.

Participating artists include: Chris Archer, Aneta Bartos, Robert Chamberlin, Christo, Nathan Dilworth, Tim Donovan, Austin Eddy, Shaina Gates, Terrence Koh, Tyler Lafreniere, Erika Mahr, Sara Maria Salamone, Adam Stennett and Dustin Yellin
