Art Center presents works by Christopher Manning
The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center will host a reception for the opening of an exhibit by Christopher Manning, Mixed Media Works in 2D & 3D, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 21. The exhibit, curated by Thomas Huber, continues through June 19.
Manning’s sculptures, which he calls chandeliers, are hanging lumps of tactile materials that often have heavy wear — an unknown but evidently long, hard and well-used history. His flat works, which often incorporate Polaroids and collage, explore themes of excavation and self.
The artist, who lives in Yorktown Heights, is the exhibitions coordinator at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum and a professor of visual art at Manhattanville College. The Riverside Galleries are located at 23 Garrison Landing in Garrison.
