August 31–October 31, 2015, Front St
Opening Reception Saturday, September 19, 6–8 pm
Curated by Anna Macrae
This exhibit seeks to explore ideas about personal identities and self. The artists have been asked to respond to notions referencing human characteristics, who they are, how they might be perceived and their own personal interpretations to the world that they move in.
The exhibition forms a visual diary of sorts, and is an eclectic installation of 2 and 3 dimensional artwork, as well as poetry. The various “collections” communicate information about the artists’ social, cultural and self-identity, through memories, experiences and the artwork that they have created.
Also featuring in this exhibition will be a selection of assemblage Fill in The Blank boxes created by artEAST members. These boxes will showcase collections that give a brief personal insight into the maker’s world.
This exhibition at Front Street runs parallel to the exhibition I Am at Blakely Hall, which features work from the Pacific Northwest African-American Quilters group.
