Grayscale Show at Abel Contemporary
Saggar fired earthenware clay

Alex Mandli is one of 19 featured artists in a new show called Grayscale at the Abel Contemporary Gallery. Grayscale highlights work done almost exclusively in shades of gray. Working in a wide range of media the creators in this exhibit show us how satisfying a limited pallet can be, allowing greater room for play with the values of light and dark. In this group show artists will demonstrate how when freed from color, they are able to push boundaries and highlight nuances in their chosen mediums.

Alex Mandli has been selected for a 2018 Racine Art Museum Artist Fellowship. The RAM Artist Fellowship Program aims to showcase the diversity and vitality of the Racine/Kenosha visual arts community by supporting the professional development of its artists. The goal is to distinguish the region as a place that values the arts, and enhance the area’s desirability as a place for artists to work and live.

Concurrent solo exhibitions featuring each recipient's work will be presented at RAM's Wustum Museum of Fine Arts beginning August 2019. By increasing critical attention and exposure for recipients, the program fosters their continued creative and professional development.
