Arlene Shechet

Couple of

July 17–August 28, 2022

‘T’ Space is pleased to present a Arlene Shechet’s first solo show in the Hudson Valley. The show was on view from July 17 – August 28, 2022. Shechet’s sculptures utilize natural materials such as wood as well as ceramics glazed with vibrant colors. Architectural in themselves, the sculptures’ exploration of movement, gravity, and the precariousness of form are in sensitive dialogue with the gallery’s distinctive structural and spatial relationships.

In addition to the works presented in the gallery, a fourth site-specific work is displayed outdoors on the nearby ‘T’ Space Installation trail. Spot Light is a high-fired partially glazed porcelain sculpture framed by two trees and the natural rock formations of the ‘T’ Space reserve.

The ‘T’ Space installation trail is open to visitors every Sunday from 11 AM – 5 PM until October 16. To visit the trail, please meet the gallery attendant at ‘T’ Space gallery who will direct you to the sculpture trail.



Arlene Shechet is a multidisciplinary sculptor living and working in New York City and the Hudson Valley. A major, critically acclaimed survey of her work, All At Once, which the New York Times called “some of the most imaginative American sculpture of the past 20 years, and some of the most radically personal,” was on view at The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, in 2015 with an accompanying monograph. Shechet’s work also includes historical museum installations. Porcelain, No Simple Matter: Arlene Shechet and the Arnhold Collection was on view at The Frick Collection, New York (2016); and From Here On Now at The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., (2016). The artist’s ambitious large-scale public project, that included monumental porcelain and mixed-media sculptures, opened in September 2018 at Madison Square Park in New York.

Shechet was featured in PBS’s Art 21 (2014) as well as in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s The Artist Project (2016). She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a John S. Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship Award (2004), the Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant (2010), and the 2016 CAA Artist Award for Distinguished Body of Work.

Shechet’s work is held in many distinguished public collections, including the Brooklyn Museum, New York; CCS Bard Hessel Museum, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York; The Jewish Museum, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others.
