TEN Kingston Associates presents a politically charged exhibition titled heated in which the artists address concerns about the present climate, both the heated post-election social environment in the US and the changing climate on our planet. Photography, sculpture, painting, printmaking, and mixed-media are brought together in this fiery collective display on view in the Main, Center, and Members' Galleries. heated entwines the passion and energy of incandescent color and the sizzling friction between known realities and political fictions. High temperature hues suggests landscapes being devoured by intense heat, laying bare fears of changing climate. Like a cacophony of vibrant exchange, the convergence of photography, sculpture and painting builds intensity through juxtaposition of form and material realities. Heated presents work by artists Jamie Bowman, Tatiana Flis, Jane Lincoln, Nat Martin, Laurel McMechan, Rachel Mello, On-Kyeong Seong, Rachel Sevanich, Rachel Thern, and Anne Sargent Walker.
