(GLASSBORO, NJ) — Rowan University Art Gallery present Cultivated space, a new group exhibition featuring works by Anonda Bell, Henry Bermudez, Linda Brenner, Fritz Dietel, Steven Donegan, Rachel Eng, Darla Jackson, Martha Jackson-Jarvis, Mi-Kyoung Lee, Michelle Marcuse, Sana Musasama and Joanna Platt. The exhibition runs from April 11 to July 16, 2022.

This group exhibition includes works that resonate with the complexities and divergent perceptions attributed to gardens and cultivated spaces. On a personal and intimate level, gardens are seen as a place of refuge, comfort and emotional centering. The wider impacts, however, reveal the disparate interpretations of cultivated spaces from a socio-economic and environmental point of view. The works in this exhibition are not literal representations, but rather through artistic processes and intentions serve as an entry point to consider a myriad of intersections.

Cultivated space is co-organized by Syd Carpenter, Marsha Moss, and Mary Salvante, in conjunction with Philadelphia Sculptors, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit that provides professional services to regional artists, promotes contemporary sculpture, and strives to raise awareness the role and value of sculpture through exhibitions, public forums, member services and educational activities.

The gallery will hold an opening reception on April 14 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Rowan University Art Gallery is located at 301 High St W in Glassboro, New Jersey. The gallery is open Monday to Friday (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and Saturday (11 a.m. – 4 p.m.). All visitors must wear a mask and respect safety distances. Free parking is available in the parking garage on Mick Drive near the Gallery.

The Rowan University Art Gallery is a vibrant cultural destination for South Jersey, the Rowan community and the surrounding region. Our mission is to provide a platform for discussion of best practices in contemporary art by professional artists, curators and scholars through the presentation of interdisciplinary art exhibitions, panel discussions, guest curatorial projects and other public programs.
