Facing Forward: Portraits Looking to Our Future
Curated by Artists Equity
April 3 - May 31
This exhibit will focus on portraiture to tell stories of inspiration, hope, challenge, and change that face this unusual time in history head-on. It has always been the role of art to document, examine, and make sense of a concept and our moment in time. What better vehicle to begin to process, capture, and reflect on who we are today than portraiture?
From Inspiration to Expression
August 10 - October 9
Opening Reception: Tuesday, August 22 | 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.
The National League of Pen Women Diamond State Branch's Arts and Letters Challenge allowed its artists and writers to stimulate their creativity, push creative boundaries, explore different creative ways of expression, and present their unique point of view.
Members submitted titles of existing work that would be used as inspiration for newly created pieces. Artists picked the title of a written work to use as inspiration for a new painting, while writers picked a title of a painting to use as inspiration for a new piece of writing.
“From Inspiration to Expression” is the culmination of this unique project, revealing who had whose piece and what the artist/writer did with it. The original and new pieces are displayed together.
