EASY AIR: Scott Ingram, Ridley Howard, and Christina West
ON VIEW: March 24 - May 12, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, March 24, 6 – 9 PM
HATHAWAY is proud to present EASY AIR, a group exhibition featuring work by Ridley Howard, Scott Ingram, and Christina West. This multi-media exhibition, including installation, sculpture, drawing, and painting, explores the psychology of constructed space and its relationship to the human figure. The show’s title, EASY AIR, is a nod to spatial designation and division, as well as the airy, detached psychological state that is at play in Howard, Ingram, and West’s work. EASY AIR will open in conjunction with two solo exhibitions, Craig Drennen’s Painters and Tyler Bead’s Shorelines.
