8 Extraordinary Design Gallery Shows to See in March


About the Show

On view through April 1, this poetic showcase at downtown’s Guild Gallery is the first solo exhibition in New York for artist Maggie Wells, whose formal background as a painter informed her later forays into ceramic sculptures. Here, some 60 monochromatic vessels, forms, and objects perfectly complement an array of ink and gouache drawings, inviting the viewer to dig deeper into her intuitive, emotion-laden practice. A highlight is undoubtedly Wells’s unusual use of glaze, especially for the luminous bronze-hued works. “I am constantly turning the piece to make a form that is interesting from all angles,” she reflects. “Thus the experience of looking at them can always be refreshed.”
