Carter Studio Artists Exhibit at Quicksilver
October 31—December 7, 2008
The Quicksilver Mine Co. presents a wide-ranging mixed media exhibition by twenty current and former resident artists of the Richard Carter Studio beginning October 31st. Established in 1992 and located in Pope Valley, California, the Carter Studio is a private working studio and artist residency program offering committed artists from around the world a place to live and work in a small, supportive arts community.
Artists participating in this unique exhibition include Los Angeles-based sculptor Nathan Mabry, whose work draws from a range of divergent cultural material, moving between conceptualism and irreverence to inform both the objects he creates and their relation to art history.
Also in this show: New York sculptor Christian Batteau, known for his figurative and abstracted works in bronze, concrete and clay; a site specific nylon thread/colored yarn installation by Kathinka Willinek of Germany; and ceramic sculpture by studio founder Richard Carter, along with drawings, textiles and a variety of mixed media fine art by other current and former Carter Studio artists, some now living in Korea, Canada, Hawaii and San Francisco.
