#CorrespondenceCourse (2015-2017) is a material exchange project between artists Abigail Doan & Brece Honeycutt.  Doan states:

“Their artistic correspondence features mailings back and forth between the artists’ homes in the Berkshires and New York City (as well as to and from Sofia, Bulgaria, during summer of 2016). Materials include handmade postcards, stitched stationary, gathered materials from rural and urban walks, historic sewing patterns, hand-drawn charts, botanically dyed and pleated paper, as well as other modern ephemera. Their collaboration is continuous and ongoing and serves as an examination of modern and historic connections in their daily lives.”

bewilder exhibition in April Gallery Chronicle in The New Criterion

Date : April 2, 2017

 

James Panero reviews bewilder in the The New Criterion’s April Gallery Chronicle.

“At Norte Maar, Honeycutt has now gone back into her textiles and papers with additional interventions. In some examples, she has created free-form and hanging sculptures out of an assembly of paper prints and found objects—whimsical work that calls to mind the anthropomorphic scrap-metal sculptures of Richard Stankiewicz. In others, the introduction of thread, which she weaves into the linens, structures her compositions and serves as drawn lines. Here I found the white, undyed linens of her “winterfield” series most striking. By introducing shapes and textures distilled in deeply felt and spare abstractions, Honeycutt recalls farmland vegetation—as well as the “women’s work” that once stitched farm life together.”

Ideas & Influences on Two Coats of Paint

Date : March 30, 2017

“Artist and citizen naturalist Brece Honeycutt lives in Massachusetts, on a colonial farmhouse in the foothills of the Berkshire mountains. Fascinated with the history of her home and the surrounding land, she reads handwritten antique diaries at the local library, gathers old textiles, and creates natural dyes from the plants she collects on her morning walks. During her walks, she closely observes changes to the landscape, making notes that become the basis for new projects. On the occasion of her solo show at Norte Maar, Honeycutt has compiled the following list of ideas and influences that inform her work.”

Norte Maar is pleased to present bewilder: new works by Brece Honeycutt. The exhibition will feature new works in textile, mixed media, monoprints and sculpture that spark a conversation about the history of the textile, the object, and the living present of “nature” and our relationship to it. A fully illustrated catalogue with essay by Anne Swartz will accompany the exhibition. Also on view will be sound series, four collages by Audra Wolowiec, prints of which were published by Norte Maar and marked the organization’s first commissioned print edition.

“Critic’s Notebook” selects The Warmth of Winter for best to see

Date : January 6, 2017

James Panero picks The Warmth of Winter for The New Criterion’s weekly Critic’s Pick which “previews the best to read, see and hear.”

“The Warmth of Winter” at the National Arts Club (through January 6): The National Arts Club on New York’s Gramercy Park has been hosting groundbreaking art exhibitions for over a century. Members of the Ashcan School mounted a historic exhibition in its Grand Gallery a decade before the Armory Show of 1913. Now through January 6, a group exhibition called “The Warmth of Winter” organized by the artist Dee Shapiro pays homage to that legacy by bringing together a thoughtful cross-section of artists from what we might very broadly call today’s “Brooklyn School.” With work by Gary Petersen, Brece Honeycutt, Amy Lincoln, Patricia Fabricant, Oriane Stender, and over sixty others, the exhibition benefits the club’s Will Barnet Student Show Prizes—cash awards for artists of high-school age, named after the centenarian painter and longtime artist-in-residence at the club who died in 2012.”

CorrespondenceCourse

Date : November 11, 2016

Norte Maar features our recent collaboration: ‘Charting the #CorrepsondenceCourse of Two Artists  Abigail Doan + Brece Honeycutt.’

detail of Correspondence Course exchange with Abigail Doan + Brece Honeycutt

“Founded on the ideas of collaboration among artists, Norte Maar is always excited to learn about independent projects that take form when two or more artists create, respond and explore the world together. One such project, initiated during the Autumn of 2015, features artists Abigail Doan (@lostinfiber) and Brece Honeycutt (@onacolonialfarm) who began a parallel process of collecting, diagramming, and altering select materials in an urban to rural dialogue intended to examine modern and historic connections in their daily lives. The results of this dialogue have evolved into #CorrespondenceCourse: a collaborative, materials exchange project between artists Abigail Doan and Brece Honeycutt.”

Please read the full article and view images on Norte Maar’s website. 

Norte Maar for Collaborative Projects in the Arts: creating, promoting and presenting collaborations among the visual, literary and performing arts, connecting emerging artistic communities, and uniting cultural forces to foster artistic expression and raise the imaginative energy in us all.  To participate in their current #MakeMoreArt campaign, visit the Indiegogo website.


b(RE)ce garments at LABspace

Date : September 28, 2016

Saturday October 22nd at 12pm, please join us for a ‘fashion show’ of b(RE)ce garments at LABspace in Hillsdale, NY

brece-honeycutt-event

Both eco-dyed b(RE)ce garments and works on paper will be on view.

The b(RE)ce series is made from selected repurposed garments (shirts, sweaters, blazers, dresses) dyed naturally from plants gathered from the land around my studio in Western Massachusetts. On summer mornings, I collect morning glories, rose leaves and coreopsis, for example, and in the fall harvest fallen leaves and barberry, and dry goldenrod and zinnias for winter use in dyeing. The colors and patterns imprinted on the garments were once found on the forest floor or on the stalks of plants. Each b(RE)ce garment is a unique, naturally dyed work.

LABspace,  2642 NY 23 (just west of Route 22), Hillsdale NY 12529
