Artist’s reception on Second Saturday, Feb. 14
The Howland Public Library presents Obstructed Memories, an exhibition of works on paper by Lynn Seeney. Obstructed Memories will be on view in the Adult Programs Exhibit Space now through March 1. An artist reception will be held on Saturday, Feb. 14, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The exhibition at the Howland Public Library showcases new mixed media works by Seeney. In this series of wildly expressive abstracts, Seeney explores the concept of memory. The artist believes that “memory is only the result of personally selected elements of real events.” In the exhibit, she “examines the layers that obscure and make difficult any true clarity in remembrances.”
Seeney is a painter and art educator currently living in New York. She received her BFA in studio arts from Tyler School of Art and her MFA in studio arts from New York University. She currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts and is a lecturer for the Museum of Modern Art.
Her work has been exhibited in over 200 shows in the U.S. and abroad, including the Museu da Imagem e do Som, São Paulo, Brazil; Documenta-Archiv, Kassel, Germany; Le Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice, France; Musée de La Poste, Paris, France; and the Muury Space, Helsinki, Finland.
