STELLA EBNER: THE WORLD HAS NEED OF YOU at Cade Tomkins Projects: Providence

Cade Tomkins Projects 198 Hope St, Providence

MAY 11 - JUNE 29, 2024 We are pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Stella Ebner. This marks the second solo presentation of prints by Ebner with the gallery. Known for her lush watercolor monotype and woodcut prints, Ebner's point of view presents an increasingly intimate take on life in the everyday. The show’s title comes from a poem by Ellen Bass of the same name. In the poem, Bass asks us to examine and acknowledge that our lives and actions are important and can make a difference. As Stella explains, “I am creating a series of large-scale watercolor monotypes depicting contemporary moments and events that bring people together, from intimate moments to larger collective experiences: a 100th birthday celebration; meeting a new baby, swimming lessons at a community pool, a novel writing group, and a library story time.  Like the poem, with its emphasis on the gravity of small moments, these prints attempt to give weight and make visible these often-unacknowledged instances of quiet connection, of teaching, of learning, and of care. Some moments such as these reveal the bonds that connect us and help us overcome the rifts and cracks in our society that divide us.” For more information Open By Appointment:  (401) 751-4888
