Susan Metrician featured in In-Studio/Tangent exhibition

In-Studio/Tangent: An exhibition curated by Marshall Harmon in conjunction with the the League Treatment Center and League Artists Natural Design (LAND) on view November 6th – December 6th, 2009.

In-Studio features the work of artists living with autism-spectrum disabilities whose creative talents qualify them to participate in an immersive studio program. The artists are led in group projects by Marshall Harmon, Workshop Visiting Artist. Artists Matt Murphy (Art Specialist and a founding team member of LAND) and Susan Metrican (Gallery/Habitation Coordinator) guide and support each artist’s personal exploration.

Established in 2005, LAND is the latest program of the League Treatment Center, a unique studio that helps artists develop their skills in a nurturing environment, as well as market their vibrant work. LAND has gained worldwide support from curators, collectors, writers, and arts organizations, dedicated to social change and the expansion of the art world.

Tangent features the work of Marshall Harmon, Matt Murphy, and Susan Metrican from the LAND studio. All three artists differ in style, yet each draws inspiration from LAND’s creative environment.

Susan Metrican’s series of still-life paintings reveal the preciousness of ordinary objects. Incorporating scale and a sense of humor, Metrican’s images explore the lines between intimacy, awkwardness, and distance.

Regular exhibition hours will be Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5:30 pm. JDK Gallery - 47 Maple Street in Burlington, Vermont
