About Trestle Visits

Trestle Visits is a way for our us to introduce and promote the work of artists from around the country to the Trestle community. We hope that these visits can provide both a window into the work and practices of emerging artists as well as become a resource for other curators for future exhibitions, both at Trestle and at other locations.


Anthony Bowers

Philadelphia-based artist Anthony Bowers makes paintings that are reflections on American identity, class, and the passage of time. His work takes many forms, whether they are his series of cloud paintings which become an attempt to record the passage of time or his "belly paintings" which he stuffs with various materials. Anthony is a member of FJORD, an artist-run space in Philadelphia.

Jacob Cartwright

Jake Cartwright’s recent paintings are musical offerings using concepts of theme & variations, rhythm, and repetition to create visually complex spatial and color relationships. His airbrushed surfaces appear to be hard-edged and graphic from a distance but upon closer inspection reveal a softness in the relationships between the edges and forms. His kinetic paintings refuse to stay in one place — the forms and spaces seem to be constantly shifting as your eye moves through his works.
