Latitudes: A Collaborationon View at New Haven’s City Galley

Mixed media artists Susan Newbold and Nancy Mooslin come together for Latitudes: A Collaborationat New Haven’s City Gallery, Thursday, September 5 - Sunday, September 20. The Opening Reception on Saturday, September 7 (3-6PM) is your chance to meet these two long-time friends and to witness the results of their collaborative process.

What brought Mooslin, from the West Coast, and Newbold, from the East Coast, together for this exhibit was a history of friendship between two artists. They have long shared an interest in the patterns found in the details of nature. Often these details were site-specific to the areas in which they lived and traveled, but mixed media offered them a shared vocabulary over the years.

“We have discovered that a successful collaboration requires each of us to lay aside personal ego and any preconceived idea of what the outcome will be,” explains Newbold. “You also have to be receptive to new approaches and new ways of using media.” 

“During the collaborative process, totally unique ideas and images emerge that would not have happened in our solo work,” adds Mooslin. “There is a cross fertilization of ideas and mediums which creates the opportunity to learn from each other and create with each other.”

Make time to see Latitudes: A Collaborationin September. The exhibit is free and open to the public. City Gallery is located at 994 State Street, New Haven, CT 06511. Gallery hours are Thursday - Sunday, 12 noon - 4pm. For further information please contact City Gallery, info@city-gallery.org, www.city-gallery.org.
