2 X 3 X 10: MARSHA COTTRELL, MATT HARLE, JAMES SHEEHAN, examines two works made ten years apart by each of these three mid-career artists. “Marsha, Matt and James are some of the first people I met when I moved to New York over 10 years ago. There’s something about “intimacy” in this show — it exists between these artists and within (and between) their works. The work suggests a language just beyond the viewer’s reach. One that is simultaneously infinite and intimate in scope and one that continues to resonate.”–Charles Goldman
