Artist & Curator Conversation: Roberley Bell and Sarah Freeman

July 20, Thursday, 7 p.m.

Join artist Roberley Bell and BMAC Director of Exhibitions Sarah Freeman for a conversation about Bell’s artistic practice and Where Things Set, an exhibition of Bell’s work at BMAC through October 9.

In the exhibition, Bell’s sculptures and drawings share space, allowing us to see Bell’s process and the way she works her ideas from two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional sculptural forms. On paper, Bell experiments with color, form, and composition. These experiments translate into her sculptural works, which are composed of both fabricated and found materials and are imbued with vivid, saturated colors. Working between representation and abstraction, Bell describes herself as “continuously in search of form.” The resulting works of art explore materiality and the feelings distinct materials can elicit.

Roberley Bell’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at ALAN Istanbul, MEDEA Malmö, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and Black & White Gallery. She has had numerous residencies, including at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, the Salzburger Kunstverein, and The International Studio Program in N.Y.C. Bell lives in western Massachusetts and maintains a studio in Easthampton.
