Short Stories: A Group Exhibition
September 12 – October 26, 2017 Reception: Thursday, September 14, 1 - 4pm
For this exhibition, Sonoma County artists come together, presenting new works in a variety of media including painting, sculpture and assemblage. Often, art is a reflection of our perception of the environment, highlighted by our own past experiences. Sometimes our memories may omit the less ideal parts of the past and accent more perfect aspects, affecting our view of the present on many levels. Artists will investigate notions of times past, creating open narratives for viewer engagement, redefining familiar notions and questioning alleged realities. This exhibit will speak to the conviction that art making is a stage for retelling stories of our past, by providing ‘short stories’ to incorporate newly gained facts and experiences through the use of paints and found objects.
