The exhibition reveals some of the investigations, processes and inspirations these artists use to produce specific artworks. The highly crafted paintings and drawings created by these artists are shown side-by-side with the sketchbooks, digital mock-ups, photographic studies, art history books, and color studies that informed their decisions during production.

“Loops and Strips” New Paintings by Nataliya Bregel 11/3- 12/30
Opening Reception: November 3, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: November 9, 1-1:30pm
Nataliya Bregel’s paintings are based on video footage from her travels. She shoots footage in both public and domestic environments, observing unfolding interactions between friends and family or groups of strangers. Bregel then selects a group of still shots from a section of video, which she then paints onto thin horizontal panels and more recently, the interiors of hoops, allowing the viewer to become immersed in these intimate portraits. The narrative of memory and travel is built into her paintings.

“New Work” Nathalie Miebach 3/28-5/15
Opening Reception: March 28, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: April 4, 1-1:30pm
Nathalie Miebach’s brings together rigorous craft, science, and art to create her intricate yet playful sculptures. The artist utilizes scientific data related to astronomy, ecology, and meteorology into woven sculptures whose forms evoke baskets, nets, and models for planetary systems. The forms appropriately parallel the real life counterparts that both affect and are affected by the data that informs their structure. At Babson, she will create a site-specific wall sculpture in the Hollister Gallery. Ms Miebach received her MFA from MASS college of Art. She is a recipient of the MASS cultural council fellowship in Sculpture and the Blanche Colman and is a 2011 recipient of a Pollock Krasner Grant and a TED Global Fellowship.
