Mutual Aid
October 1 - 26, 2019
Stark Gallery, Kent State University, Ohio
Co-curated by Jack McWhorter, Katharine Dufault and Patrica Spergel 

In organization theory, mutual aid is a voluntary reciprocal exchange of resources and services for mutual benefit. Painting Center membership is an example.
Mutual Aid as ‘Sharing’ - as a pattern-forming process this is basic in animal life. Think migration of birds and animals… mutual aid to hold small groups together.
In our studio practice - a collage or drawing may lead to a small study that then informs a painting which in turn leads to a series.  Members can exhibit three works that reflect the idea of how one work connects to another via visual problem solving... or interconnections of process.
