Tiger Strikes Asteroid Philadelphia (TSA PHL) is pleased to present Here After, a two-person exhibition featuring the work of Megan Biddle and Erin Woodbrey. Working across two and three dimensions, the work in Here After toggles between registers of time and physicality. What seems to be in a state of fluidity and movement is, in fact, in stasis. What is heavy is light, and that which is new seems from another time. Through objects made by naturally-occurring and fabricated processes and materials, both artists examine a spectrum of states between permanence and decay. The exhibition will be accompanied with “The Old, the New, the Fossil: Megan Biddle and Erin Woodbrey’s Here After,“ an essay by Leah Triplett Harrington.

Ripples of glass are fossilized like scars in one of Biddle’s relief sculptures entitled Future Relics. The title references a memorial object of a time we have not yet encountered, impressing upon the material world like wounds from a pressure ulcer. The dark black glass of these works is encrusted with sand, residue from their making. To produce these sculptures, Biddle plunges an object into a bed of sand, as if to explore the unseen terrain below. The resulting hollow is filled with molten black glass. This process echoes the tension between surface and what lies beneath, a theme which reverberates throughout her work.

In Woodbrey’s The Carrier Bag Series, an ongoing body of sculptural and related photographic works, objects are illuminated and entombed in a mixture of ash, plaster, and gauze. As if pulled from a museum of a future past, these free-standing sculptures reference both contemporary and ancient objects, building materials, and analog forms. The series draws its title from Ursula K. Le Guin’s radical rethinking of the story of human origin and technology in “The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction.” Catalyzed by this and the urgency to rethink materials and cycles of waste and consumption, Woodbrey examines the paradox built into objects that are intended to be discarded but not intended to decompose. Through a careful repurposing of material, the container is animated from within, becoming a central figure in a narrative about accumulation and new materiality.

“In a statement by the jurors, Montross writes, “There is a certain fragility and resourcefulness within this Biennial: artworks that resemble or use scrim, string, patchwork, and connective tissues. There are cast-off parts or fragments brought together through collage and assemblage. This sense of connectivity—of small, individual parts joining to re-form into a whole—extends to people: artists convey intimate, private worlds, memories, and interpersonal relationships, both real and imagined, through touch, familial closeness, and tender humor.”

Jeffries adds, “The artists participating together form a resounding chorus of perspectives, reflecting the pivotal moment in which we exist—the societal inequities we push against, our understanding of time and our transience on Earth, the drive to understand one’s identity and lineage, and our relationship to the environment and our place within it.”

Exhibition Description

“A Good Jawn” comprises twelve works chosen from White Columns’ Curated Artist Registry.

With the beloved North Philly expression heavy on my mind during my selection process, the title of the exhibition and the warmth it sparks in describing the all-encompassing; in this case optimistic, was deeply felt in putting together this show.

In homage to the liveliness the phrase represents, “A Good Jawn” focuses on the narratives that arise from the abstraction of each included work.

If you release the idea of the essential self, throw it naked into the surf and let the sea carry it away, then everything changes. Without it, masks take on a new expanse of possibility. They can conceal, yes, but as the magician says, they can also clarify what is true – in precisely the same way a story can tell you something better than stark facts ever could.

— Akwaeke Emezi’s “Dear Senthuran” (2021)

Thank you Violet, Tamara, Erin and Matthew for the opportunity and support.

Brittany Adeline King is an artist and curator living and working in New York. “

Genevieve Busby, Melissa Capasso, Antonia DaSilva, Joerg Dressler, Iren Handschuh, Traci Harmon-Hay,
Lyne Lapointe, Emma Logan, Julia Salinger, Jon Verney, Erin Woodbrey, and Mike Wright

October 8 – November 14, 2022

Farm Projects, 355 Main Street, Wellfleet (down the brick walkway)

Together With at Farm Projects features twelve artists working in a contemporary 21st century framework. The work on view is a two and three-dimensional interdisciplinary representation through painting, photography, ceramics, glass, and found material. Together With links these materials and contextualizes the work in visual ensemble. Work was selected for its technical and formal skill but also its acute understanding of how the materiality of medium meets concept.

The show plays with the new relationships and dichotomies which emerge when pieces of art are juxtaposed in a space. Themes of reclamation, the natural world, memory, identity, geography, and fantasy coalesce to suggest new ways of seeing and thinking about art, perhaps changing how we see and learning something about our unique visual response.”

-Megan Hinton, curator

Lichtung Group Exhibition

April 1 – July 3, 2022

Gaa Gallery,  494 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA

Gaa Gallery is pleased to present Lichtung a group exhibition featuring Melissa Brown, Angelina Gualdoni, Adam Helms, Hipkiss, Heidi Howard, Kaylie Kaitschuck, Anina Major, Zoe McGuire, Hélène Padoux, Dan Schein, James Everett Stanley, Elizabeth Tibbetts, Lumin Wakoa, Autumn Wallace, and Erin Woodbrey.

Lichtung, translating from German to English as glade or clearing, is a group exhibition which celebrates the exuberance and strangeness of the natural world. Often characterized by grassy meadows, a sunlit space of lower laying plant life, or an opening amidst a stand of tall trees, a glade is an open area within the landscape serving an ecological and aesthetic function. A space made by natural processes- the result of certain weather conditions, grazing animals, clearings create opportunities for regeneration and sustenance for both plants, human and non-human animals.

In Lichtung we encounter the landscape through the soil, through windows, through glimpses of real and imagined places. We see clearings, both literal and metaphorical rendered in paint, graphite, textile, and in sculptural forms. In these works, nature is something we can see and prompts us to imagine the things that are hard to see. The minutia the human eye glazes over is captured and reinterpreted through image. Through art the complexities of nature are condensed and synthesized. Presenting an accumulation of moments, the artists in this exhibition portray themes of growth, decay, and transformation. Depicting decomposition and rebirth of plants, fungi, and insects, art takes in the cycles of nature and becomes an experience on its own. Through the attentive gazes of these artists one sees the things that time only reveals later.


“Curated after an international open call, Points of Return presents works by 25 artists that highlight some of the impacts that human actions have had on our planet and foster critical thinking about positive change. The title of the exhibition references the fact that we haven’t reached the dreaded “point of no return” – there are still opportunities for our civilisation to curb climate change and move toward a balanced and more sustainable and harmonious way of inhabiting Earth.

Points of Return brings to the surface the problematic relationship the human species has toward planet Earth and highlights how human activity, particularly since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, has induced climate breakdown. Yet, we firmly believe there are reasons for optimism. The projects exhibited show that there are multiple paths and approaches that can be taken, in order to restore the environmental balance that we have destabilised. The online exhibition can be visited at”

Sensing Place Curated by Anna Queen and Justine Kablack

February 18 – June 12, 2022

University of New England Art Gallery,  716 Stevens Avenue, Portland, ME

The University of New England Art Gallery on the Portland Campus is pleased to present “Sensing Place.”  An informal open house, free and open to the public, will be held Friday, Feb. 18, from noon to 7 p.m.

Featuring the works of Steven Cottingham, Ficus Interfaith, James Maurelle, Farhad Mirza, Martyna Szczęsna, Heryk Tomassini, and Erin Woodbrey, this group of artists presents works that relate to the understanding of ourselves in a place. These forms, processes, and materials represent the valuable data of what is around us.

“As we constantly attempt to ground our place within chaos, we search for ways to map ourselves and our surroundings,” said curators Anna Queen and Justine Kablack. “We create unique and individualized systems to help us navigate the everyday, actively negotiating an ever-shifting landscape. Space is constantly analyzed and documented, whether it’s natural, digital, or architectural surroundings. Reference points become necessary signifiers, providing our orientation, a way to recognize and relate to one another and the environments that we inhabit.”

The Fragment Series
August 30 – September 29
Gaa Gallery Provincetown
494 Commerical Street
Provincetown, MA 02657 USA

Gaa Gallery Provincetown is pleased to present The Fragment Series, a sculptural installation by Erin Woodbrey, in the Gaa Gallery Provincetown Project Space.

Erin Woodbrey (b. 1985, Portland, ME) is a New England-based visual artist whose cross-disciplinary works—videos, photographs, prints, and sculpture—are defined by their shared fascination with process and the lineage of learning and objects. Woodbrey’s Fragments are intellectual explorations of what might be called cycle and residue: as the artist proceeds through the multiple steps of collecting, casting, shaping, and firing found material, deeply felt questions emerge of beginnings, endings, and the transformations that can sometimes eclipse finality with their suggestions of fluidity.

In The Fragment Series, Woodbrey utilizes an accelerated process of transformation, intense with physicality from its point of origin through its high fire evolution. The artist begins with a selection of everyday items, including old t-shirts and backyard branches, and dips them in liquefied porcelain before shaping them around wooden armatures and encasing them in multiple layers of slip. Woodbrey surrenders to the forces of heat and time in the kiln, where fabric and wood burn away, slumping and fusing to create fossil-like objects: organic transformations that simultaneously discard and memorialize their original forms. This two-pronged process of mediated recklessness and informed experiment is the conceptual frame for resultant objects that endure as enchanted, organic reliquaries bearing witness to the quotidian experience.

Erin Woodbrey was a 2018 recipient of a School of the Museum of Fine Arts Traveling Fellowship, and her work was most recently exhibited at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland, ME; Gaa Projects Cologne in Germany; and Code Art Fair, Copenhagen, Denmark. Recent solo exhibitions include Leg, Limber, Lumber, Limb, Higgins Gallery Cape Cod Community College, Barnstable, MA; Time Mothers, Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Material Studies, Arena Gallery, Liverpool, UK; and Air of Another Planet, Gaa Gallery, Wellfleet, MA. Woodbrey received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014, and her work is included in the public collections of Columbia College, Chicago; Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Provincetown, MA; and the Fundación ́ace Art Collection, Proyecto’ace, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Ain’t No Use
opening March 22nd, 6-10pm
@ Crybaby
Genthiner Str. 36
10785 Berlin

“Rather like wishing to hammer a table together tidily, meticulously, with a craftsman’s skill, and at the same time do nothing. But not so that they could say: ‘Hammering is nothing to him,’ but rather ‘Hammering is real hammering to him, and at the same time it is nothing too,’ which would of course make the hammering become even bolder, even more resolute, even more real, and, if you like, more crazy.”

The exhibition Ain’t No Use presents a collection of works that engage with the question of utility – inverting the attributes of functionality and through modification or commentary relating to their surrounding environment.


»einen Tisch mit peinlich ordentlicher Handwerksmäßigkeit zusammenzuhämmern und dabei gleichzeitig nichts zu tun und zwar nicht so, daß man sagen könnte: >Ihm ist das Hämmern ein Nichts<, sondern >Ihm ist das Hämmern ein wirkliches Hämmern und gleichzeitig auch ein Nichts<, wodurch ja das Hämmern noch kühner, noch entschlossener, noch wirklicher und, wenn du willst, noch irrsinniger geworden wäre.«

Die Ausstellung Ain’t No Use versammelt Arbeiten, die sich mit der Frage nach Nutzbarkeit auseinandersetzen, Funktionszuschreibungen umkehren und sich mal modifizierend, mal kommentierend auf den sie umgebenden Raum beziehen.

Hold, Run examines the world-building capacities of sculpture and its ability to create, transform and occupy space: the blurred edges of what constitutes two and three dimensional forms, the life-like facsimile of the cast form as a stand-in for the human body, the transformation of found objects to convey ideas about use, history and the proposals of the future, the transcendent use of materials, and the ultimate passage of time and temporality seen through material resilience and impermanence. Exhibited artists include Esteban Cabeza de Baca, Isa Genzken, Peter Hutchinson, Gary Kuehn, Erika Wastrom, Gillian Wearing, Erin Woodbrey, and Peter Zimmermann.

CMCA Biennial Exhibition – November 3, 2018 – March 3, 2019 – “Taking place in the fall of even-numbered years, the CMCA Biennial is an open, statewide juried exhibition featuring work in all mediums produced by the selected artists in the past two years. A snapshot of Maine’s vibrant contemporary art scene, the CMCA Biennial dates back to 1978 and is the longest-running juried competition in the state. Jurors for 2018 are Kate Green, Guest Director of Marfa Contemporary, Marfa, Texas, and Robin K. Williams, Ford Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Detroit, Michigan.”

An emotional struggle responding to the growing isolation that exists around each corner, in a society that engages more with the virtual than physical civilization. Some choose to deconstruct both physical and psychological space in a fight against the numbness of hyperstimulation.

Each of the works in this exhibition can be considered scenes from that aforementioned reality. A fleeting melancholy or familiarity is embedded in each object. There are also qualities pointing to physical mass, collectiveness, and society. The inclusion of pictorial and structural works are meant to place these subjects in the context of our built environment.

Featuring photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, print, and mixed media, this selection presents works selected from our last National and International Open Call. Artists include Clarissa Bonet (Chicago, IL), Tannaz Farsi (Eugene, OR), Emily Hermant (Montreal, QC), Sharon Koelblinger (Philadelphia, PA), Alexander Krajkowski (Eugene,OR), Donald Morgan (Eugene, OR), Sarah Nance (Richmond, VA), Camilo Ramirez (Jamaica Plain, MA), Lauren Sudbrink (Chicago, IL), Erin Woodbrey (Truro, MA), Jason Yi ( Milwaukee, WI), and Qian Zhao (Juijiang, China & San Francisco, CA).
