Featuring new works by Reuben Breslar, Jennifer DePalma, Adam Dwight, and Treva Elwood, this year's Exercises for Emerging Artists program, guest-curated by artist and professor Page Carr, highlights various incarnations of drawing, painting, and animation that explore themes of artistic process, personal history, character study, and the struggle for perfection.
Launched in March 2004, Transformer's Exercises For Emerging Artists was created to support artists at critical points or crossroads in their professional growth and development, and to advance participating artists' creative careers. Consisting of a series of two-hour, bi-weekly gatherings spanning three months, the program is designed to stimulate and encourage participating artists as they create new work. In addition to peer critique sessions, the participating artists received mentorship and critical feedback on their work from artists Billy Colbert and Molly Springfield, as well as Andrea Pollan, Director of Curator's Office.
