Carver Hill pop-up

Martin shows in the Yellow Barn

Jun 30, 2018
America Martin’s “Men Towels and Tide Pool” is a new acrylic and ink on paper.

Rockland — Carver Hill Gallery will host a pop-up exhibition of work by America Martin at 20 Winter St., the yellow barn across from CMCA, opening First Friday, July 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. The show will run through July 22; hours will be weekdays from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment.

Martin is an internationally represented Colombian-American fine artist based in Los Angeles. Her primary subject is the human form, captured with confident and intuitive line work. She pulls from the stylistic lessons of the classics and its derivations in indigenous subject matter, while redefining what it is to combine abstract and indigenous motifs.

While born in the United States, the roots of Martin’s Colombian heritage penetrate her work — much of which is large-scale. As part of this show of brand new 2018 work, Carver Hill will unveil an 8-by-12 foot surprise piece painted on North Haven that has never been shown before.
