Just back from her second solo exhibition at the prominent O.K. Harris gallery in New York City, Columbia native Janet Orselli will be showing a selection of her New York show at if ART Gallery, January 13 - February 12, 2011. The opening reception is Thursday, January 13, 5:00 - 9:00 p.m.
In the exhibition’s found object constructions, Orselli, who lives in North Carolina, combines clogs, roller skates, shoes, shoe forms and a mouse trap on wheels with seemingly unrelated found objects such as a rusty toy car, an egg beater or a violin part. The exhibition also will include several of Orselli's crutches juxtaposed with seemingly unrelated objects, called “Impedimenta,” which were exhibited at O.K. Harris in 2007. OK Harris is the gallery of legendary New York art dealer Ivan Karp.
