An ambitious group of artists focused on community aim to enrich the vibrancy of our local art scene. Compelled to create, these 9 artists crave the sanctuary of their creative spaces and seek understanding through their work.
Their collective motives add up to one universal virtue of growth – both creatively and professionally. Nurtured through collaboration with our local resources, the artists have experienced a six week retreat of learning and excavating their most authentic selves. The Arts Council, Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art and Jesse Norman Gallery have provided a neutral space to allow for self examination, group collaboration, and the building of camaraderie between the 9 artists who are no longer strangers.
Proving once and for all, that in a world increasingly skewed towards division, art will always bring us together.
The show will be on display in the Ann & Ellis Johnson Gallery of Art starting March 10th, with a reception with the artists on March 16th from 6-8pm.
