Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon presents The Aspect of the Object, an exhibition at the Old Chatham Country Store opening May 3, 2018 and running through June 5, 2018, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 12, 3:00-5:00.
Catskill-based artist and curator Richard Saja took the new collection photographs and reinterpreted them into playful new images, which he calls digital quilts. Original object photography was done by Boston photographer John Mulligan.
Saja has exhibited internationally with shows in New York, Paris, and Berlin and the National Museum of Embroidery in South Korea. Most recently, his work has been shown at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Toile de Jouy Museum in Josas, France. His embroidered toile is in the permanent collections of the Shelburne Museum and Philadelphia Museum of Art.
