Gallery Project presents Artifacts, a multimedia exhibit in which 30 local, regional and national artists engage with both the revered and overlooked objects of contemporary society as an investigation of the cultures which have created them.
The exhibit opens on Wednesday, January 12 and runs through Sunday, February 20. The opening reception is Friday, January 14 from 6-9.
Artists examining objects as reflections of current societal issues can be obvious or less obvious. Artifacts is intended to be interpreted broadly; sometimes challenging the notion of what an artifact is and can be through the representation of both collective and personal experience. The exhibition seeks to be inclusive to the artist and the non-artist who have extraordinary stories to tell through the use of objects.
This exhibition is intended to be a platform for the unassuming individual to reveal his or her story through objects and to showcase the objects that influence cultural collective consciousness.
Contributors include Lynda Andrus, Lea Bult, Terrence Campagna, Mary Beth Carolan, Dolan Cleverley, Christina P. Day, Lynn Galbreath, Annie Gallup, Denny Gerwin, Michelle Given, N. Sean Glover, Nathan Heuer, Scott Hocking, Nicole Jacquard, Joe Johnson, Jim Lawton, Vince Mountain, Brian Nelson, Tom Phardel, Marianetta Porter, Gloria Pritschet, James Rotz, Terri Sarris, Jaye Schlesinger, J. Amadeus Scott, Rebecca Sittler, Clinton Snider, Dylan Strzynski, Sarah Trahan, and Sue Williamson.
The exhibit is curated by Gallery Project collaborators Lea Bult, Vince Mountain and Brian Nelson.
