Today we started installing Sanctuary and Safekeeping, part 3 in my ongoing collaboration with artists Nicole Uzzell and Millicent Greason. Together we chose this topic to explore over a year ago and worked in our different mediums to expand on what environments and experiences make us feel safe and fed our souls.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen parts and pieces of this exploration through the past year, and now I’m really excited and energized to see how our individual visions are coming together and creating a dialog of artwork around this subject in the gallery.
I hope you will visit this exhibit in the coming months and add your thoughts to the ongoing conversation. It’s one of particular importance as we face the challenges in this new year. More info about the exhibit and opening reception after the jump.
Amalgamated Transmutations: Sanctuary and Safekeeping
Artists Nicole Uzzell, Millicent Greason and Woodie Anderson present new work examining spaces where comfort, safety and authenticity can be found. The third in their collaborative series, this exhibit will include three large-scale installation pieces built on-site, inviting visitors to contemplate their own feelings of safety and belonging.
The exhibit includes: paper, wire and ceramic sculptures by Nicole Uzzell, mixed media assemblages by Millicent Greason and prints and mixed-media works by Woodie Anderson.
Visitors may also explore the artistic process through an interactive installation that includes a peek into the artists studios, touchable work-in-progress, and discussion on the use of creative-space as a sanctuary for nurturing artistic thought and creation.
Opening reception: Thursday, January 19th, 5pm-7pm
Artist Discussion and Guided Exhibit Tour: Friday, February 3rd, 5:30pm – 7pm
