Dates: March 3rd- May 27, 2017
New porcelain hand-built sculptures, by artist Brooke Hine, were shown at Forage Space in Scranton, PA. This solo exhibition consisted of 16 pieces in downtown Scranton until September, 2016. This was the last exhibition before owners, Leigh and Jonathan Slingluff, moved their gallery to Narrowsburg, New York. (144 Main Street)
Forage Space was formally known as Slingluff Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
Work while in progress:
First made in 2004, for over a period of five months, four shades of “white” porcelain(handmade and mixed) was pulled and rolled into individual curvel-linear pieces. Shown over a dozen times, every exhibition was displayed as a different form. A few exhibitions include: The Center for Emerging Visual Artists(CFEVA),The Art Alliance(solo exhibition), The Delaware Contemporary Art Center(DCCA), Bahdeebahdu, and URBN Outfitters. And it was also published in “American Style Magazine” in April 2008. It even withstood a fire that occurred while making the larg sculpture during her Masters program at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Due to an unfortunate car accident in late 2014, from an individual running a red light, Hine can no longer move this installation.
Soon there will be pictures of everyone’s installations.
