New exhibit at the MAC opens April 30

Apr 28, 2021

MARION — The Marion Art Center will open a new exhibit featuring Contemporary Prints by Allison Bianco and Stella Ebner on April 30.

The show is a collaboration between the MAC and Cade Tompkins Projects, an art gallery in Providence. 

The new gallery will focus on “advancing and exhibiting contemporary art, featuring work by emerging artists as well as mid-career and established artists in various mediums including painting, sculpture, printmaking, video, drawing, and installation,” according to the Marion Art Center. 

Bianco’s work, according to Tompkins Projects, “uses a combination of intaglio and screen print to depict landscapes diminished by massive oceans and infinite skies.”

Ebner’s work focuses on the “inherent qualities of printmaking,” according to Tompkins Projects, and examines “how imagery in our society is created and conveyed within the context of a deep appreciation for the moments that are left outside the picture frame …” 

In lieu of an in-person reception, the Marion Art Center will welcome its new exhibit with a free virtual gallery tour & conversation, one of the MAC’s eight SouthCoast Spring Arts events. The virtual reception will take place via Zoom on May 7 from 6 to 8 p.m.

During the tour, gallerist Cade Tompkins will discuss the works of both artists and be available to answer questions from visitors.

The MAC exhibit will run through May 28. Current gallery hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by appointment Tuesday through Friday.

To register for the virtual event, email with “Gallery Tour” in the subject line, or visit for more information.
