On April 3rd 2015, from 6 to 9pm Gallery 2622 will be hosting the opening reception of Maggie Sasso’s Haul Away Home, a solo exhibition of hand-sewn sculpture. Sasso’s practice manifests in rigorously conceptual and cohesive bodies of work. Following through in her exploration of the relics of maritime culture, the artist renders an assortment of life-preserving devices in fabric.
Sasso is formerly educated in contemporary craft, receiving her BFA from Murray State University and her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was a visiting artist and teacher at the Oregon College of Art and Craft and currently teaches at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Sasso engages with a diverse international community of artists’ and serves on the Furniture Societies Board of Trustees.
In this body of work, the artist caricatures her own powerlessness in the face of personal catastrophe. Finding in the sea a metaphor for the endlessly damp and lonely expanses we each traverse, she helps us come to terms with an aspect of ourselves that we were never meant to become accustomed to. Humor is inevitable, and sculpture serves as the ultimate non-sequitur.” Brad Fiore
The exhibition will be on display from April 3 – 30, 2015 at Gallery 2622 Contemporary Art Gallery located at 2622 N. Wauwatosa Ave. in Wauwatosa, WI. Gallery will be open on April 3rd from 6 – 9pm for the opening reception, or call 414.257.2622 to make an appointment. www.gallery2622.com
