Lynne Clibanoff’s New Sculptures at Gallery Joe

Philadelphia - Gallery Joe announces the opening of boxed, an exhibition of constructions by Philadelphia artist Lynne Clibanoff. This series of thirteen new works will be exhibited from February 1 through March 8, 2002. boxed will be shown in the Vault Gallery along with Gravity, a show of sculpture, photographs and drawings in the Front Gallery by Harry Roseman.

With these new sculptures, all completed within the last year, Clibanoff continues her investigation of illusionistic interior scenes. Tricks of perspective invite the viewer to peer into her little environments made in cigar boxes. Small as they are, Clibanoff reveals to us empty halls, stairways, and hidden rooms.

Clibanoff’s new pieces appear to have a mysterious inner source of light. This sets them apart from her previous works which are either unlit or contained a hidden light bulb. In looking at these intimate creations we may be reminded of 16th century Dutch “cabinets” which are a source of inspiration for Clibanoff.

Clibanoff has exhibited nationally in such places as the Whitney Museum of American Art at Phillip Morris, NYC, the Library of Congress, National Collection of Fine Arts, Washington, D.C. and the Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, VA. Her work is in numerous public and private collections including The Library of Congress, Washington, DC, Museum of Modern Art, NYC, and Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT.

Lynne Clibanoff: 25 Years in Perspective, a comprehensive exhibition of Clibanoff’s work, opens this summer at The Noyes Museum in Oceanville, New Jersey.

boxed opens February 1 and continues through March 8. The artist will be present at an opening reception on First Friday, February 1 from 6:30 – 8:30 P.M. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday 12 – 5:30, other days by appointment. For additional information contact Becky Kerlin, 215.592.7752, FAX 215.238.6923,
