LABspace is very pleased to announce the opening of a sculpture installation by the Louis Comfort Tiffany award-winning sculptor Michelle Segre of Mount Washington, MA and New York, NY. Segre’s sculpture will be joined in the exhibit with paintings by Erica Svec, who lives and works in Brooklyn. The exhibition opens on Friday, July 10th with a reception for the artists on Saturday, July 11th from 12-2pm. The exhibition closes on Saturday August 8th. LABspace is located at 2642 NY Route 23 just west of NY Route 22 in Hillsdale, NY.

Michelle Segre’s entirely singular and quirky sculptures are created from an amalgam of craft materials such as string, chenille stems and yarn along with quotidienne found objects such as her child’s toys or dried mushrooms, all of which she combines with traditional sculpture materials and armatures. The sculptures are giant energy sucking super-nova amoebas (or 3-d representations of a kid’s drawings about such things.)

Erica Svec created fresh and fierce paintings out of her fascination with the mind's ability to re- contextualize words, ideas, objects and images so that new meanings evolve through narrative associations. The bold gestures and marks making in her abstract paintings eventually reveal a surprising representation of out of context combinations of everyday life objects.

LABspace, which recently moved to the Hillsdale General Store building below CrossRoads Food Shop from a former location in Great Barrington, MA, was founded and directed by the artist Susan Jennings. The gallery is dedicated to experiments in curation, exhibiting category-busting and/or materially surprising contemporary art, and hosting performance art, screenings, readings and music that push the boundaries of categorization, participation and/or experience.

The gallery is open Thursdays and Fridays from 1-6pm and Saturdays from 11am-6pm and by appointment via
