Rise

April 23, 2021 – June 18, 2021

This spring feels especially full of renewal as we begin to rise from this pandemic, as we raise up our voices for justice, as we bloom and rise into the light. When we shared this open call with the theme of “Rise” we had these ideas in mind.


Catharsis

Jan 22, 2021 – March 19, 2021

The prompt for this juried exhibition was “How are you seeing change, coping with change, and being a change-maker?” Artists responded to this prompt and our juror, Chloe Alexander, used it as a starting point for selection of work.

See Where It Takes You

July 10, 2020 – Sept 11, 2020

“Just make a mark and see where it takes you.” says Vashti’s teacher in The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. This book is a favorite of elementary art teachers and has even inspired International Dot Day celebrations around the world. That first dot Vashti makes leads her on a journey of creating all sorts of dots, exploring color and scale, positive and negative space. Like many contemporary artists, she discovers an interest and digs into it, pushing her work in new directions.

This exhibit is intended to showcase specifically for an audience of K-8 students the work of living artists, many of whom are also teachers. Along with images of the artwork, each artist has recorded a short video sharing more about their creative process, the meanings behind their work, and their advice for aspiring artists.
