PAC is delighted to host a one-man show by Jeremy Schilling through August 23.
The show comprises a selection from over 1000 drawings created since August 2019. These drawings are not about refinement but rather the physicality of the charcoal medium and reactionary decision-making in response to a live models pose. Each drawing is a five minute conversation, a question (the models pose) and the response (artist use of composition and marks). Working from life is a unique experience, as the act of observation is a fleeting one. There is only time to capture and record the most important elements and because of this, a drawing can become a journal of decisions of deemed importance. There is an honesty that emerges from these decisions.
Jeremy’s work has been on display at Gold Gallery in Boston’s SoWa District, The Wickford Arts Association Gallery, Mystic Arts Center Gallery, The Wickford and Scituate Art Festivals, and the RISD Craft Exhibition. He has had solo exhibitions at Counter Weight Brewing Company in Hamden CT in 2018, Perkatory Coffee Roasters in Middletown CT in 2019 and at AS220’s Main Project Space in Providence RI in 2019.
In July 2019 his work was part of a month long display at the Waterfire Arts Center in conjunction with Luke Jerram’s “Museum of the Moon” and John Sabraw’s “The Milky Way.” The exhibit was in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing and was in partnership with Brown University and the NASA RI Space Consortium.
Jeremy grew up in Connecticut where he was trained as a landscape painter before attending the Rhode Island School of Design, where he studied Illustration.
The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative is proud to host a group exhibition by the SaoriWorcester Weaving studio. Featuring handwoven works, the exhibition is a mix of wearable art, decorative art and functional art. Most of the work is for sale.
The show will be in our gallery for two weekends: July 31-August 1 and August 7-8 from 1pm to 5pm. Weekday visits are possible by appointment. Contact
