SHEER PANIC, is a cross discipline show, featuring the work of Montserrat College of Art graduating seniors Joanna Carey (Haverhill, MA), Keisuke Eguchi (Kanagawa, Japan), Casandra LaFlamme (Beverly, MA), Allison Myers (Boston, MA), Ivy Neff (Cambridge, MA), Amy Titus (Groveland, MA), and Chelbi Wade (Westbrook, CT).

The show incorporates paintings, drawings, and sculptures. SHEER PANIC features large scale work, collections, and installations, in which the viewer can be transported into a different way of seeing. Much of the work encourages looking closer at the world around us, whether this be in relation to nature, political issues, or everyday subjects. Many of the artists’ work draws influence from nature’s beauty and details, such as types of growth.

Paintings will be shown by Keisuke Eguchi, dealing with abstraction and color relations, and Ivy Neff, whose work explores mark making that crosses between geometric and gestural. The large scale drawings of Casandra LaFlamme work to draw attention to often overlooked political and cultural issues, while the work of Amy Titus uses influence from nature and cinema to reimagine illustration for well known literature. Chelbi Wade and Allison Myers use many mediums to explore growth patterns and the natural world. Joanna Carey uses different formats to create visual poetry.
