Furnace Gallery Opens May 1 In the Heart of Falls Village
Don’t expect any pastoral landscapes. Furnace: Art on Paper Archive, the decidedly contemporary gallery space opening on Falls Village’s quiet Main Street is as modern and minimalist as its art on display is bold and geometric.
Run by artist and former downtown New York City curator Kathleen Kucka, Furnace will mark its debut with Stephen Maine’s dynamic abstracts in a show called “Cupcake Uptake and the Cloud of Unknowing.”
The doors to this new gallery will be open to the public for the first time at a special distance-safe reception on Saturday, May 1, starting at 4 p.m.
For a longer discussion with Kucka on bringing modern aesthetics to a small-town space, look for an interview in the May 3 Compass Arts and Entertainment.
Furnace: Art on Paper Archive is at 107 Main St. in Falls Village, Conn. The opening is free — with masks required. For more information, go to www.furnace-artonpaperarchive.com or follow @furnace_artonpaper on Instagram.
