The York Public Library and Chases Garage invites you to Herd + The Tiny House Project, a collection of ceramic sculpture and silkscreen by Ned Roche and selected monoprint collages by Elise Robichaud. This exhibit will be shown October 3rd through November 30th, 2018. The public is invited to an opening reception on Thursday, October 11th starting at 5:00pm at the York Public Library.
Ned Roche is co-owner of Chases Garage: Artist Studios and Gallery in York, Maine. Roche’s Things appear to walk right out of folded slabs of clay. These amorphous forms take on the likes of buffalo, anteaters, pigs, bears, squirrels, foxes, hippos and the creatures from our dreams.
Trained in printmaking and painting at the University of Maine, Orono, Elise Robichaud has been working with copper etching and monotype techniques to create layered, dynamic, texture-based imagery fused with classic icons to open a dialog on mental health, interpersonal relationships and societal expectations. Originally created as a dialog on anxiety, depression and the journey of living with mental illness, the Tiny House Project has evolved over the years to encompass a range of viewpoints on the idea of home and what it means to be an individual and family member in our society today. Elise teaches printmaking classes and workshops at Chases Garage.
