I am delighted that Configuring(63) was selected by juror, Hilary D. Gent, for the Group A fall exhibition, “What Deepest Remains”.
The title of the exhibition comes from Walt Whitman’s poem, “The Wound Dresser,” first published in 1876, wherein the poet is asked to recount his experience tending soldiers in the hospital during the Civil War:
What stays with you latest and deepest? of curious panics,
Of hard-fought engagements or sieges tremendous what deepest remains?
The exhibition, which runs from October 4 through November 3, 2019, is part of a year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of Group A’s founding. Group A, a selective Pittsburgh artist organization, was founded in 1944 in response to the lack of critical acceptance of abstract art in the area.
