The Shaker Museum at Mount Lebanon has joined with the Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York City to present "Simplest Means," an exhibition focusing on shared visual affinities between Shaker design and reductive art.
Shaker objects from the Shaker Museum will be exhibited with works by Joshua Marsh, Michelle Grabner, Don Voisine, Nathlie Provosty, Seth Koen, Chie Fueki, Pete Schulte and Cary Smith.
The exhibition features a number of 19th century Shaker objects including a peg rail, basket, box, bowl, dipper, iron, chair, stand, farm tool and textiles.
Chosen for their simple designs and harmonious forms, each object becomes a sculptural presence and a complement to the contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture on view.
The exhibit will be on view through Feb. 15 at the Jeff Bailey Gallery, 25 West 27th St., New York, N.Y.
