October 17th - November 11th
Opening Reception with the Artists: October 20th, 6-8pm
AFA Gallery invites viewers to step into the whimsical world of contemporary surrealists Nicoletta Ceccoli and Bill Carman in PlayHouse, an immersive installation in collaboration with an established designer and landscape architect (names TBA) who will curate a special “set” for the exhibition that explores the boundaries, or lack thereof, between architecture and fine art.
Inspired by the enchanting quality of these two artists’ work, PlayHouse imagines what lies beyond the frame, giving the works new environments to exist within. Displayed in a series of interior and exterior domestic vignettes, 10 new paintings by Nicoletta Ceccoli and 12 by Bill Carman are re-contextualized, expanding the 2-dimensional works into a 3-dimensional installation.
PlayHouse will be on view October 17th through November 11th. An opening reception for the Artists will be held on Saturday, October 20th from 6-8pm, which will mark Nicoletta Ceccoli’s first U.S. appearance. The Artists will also be on hand Sunday, October 21st, from 2-4pm for a book signing, with their new catalog raisonés.
