Artist reception Saturday, November 11, 6-9pm, Exhibition November 11 to December 9th
"A Series of Fragments of Moments" curated by Karen Gutfreund and showcasing works by Shannon Amidon, Sherri Cornett, Katelyn Dorroh, Sally Edelstein, Karen Gutfreund, Penny McElroy, Michelle Nye, Priscilla Otani, Sibylle Peretti and David Weinberg, offer a provocative exploration into the fragility of memory and explores ideas about passing time, narration, marking history and perception.
Examining the ways in which memory is constructed, it reflects how individual and collective memories shape our lives, leaving an indelible mark, manifesting in objects, words and dreams that can function as physical traces or intangible points of contact to the past. The works reflect the simple act of marking a specific time to the recording of memory to construct identity. Whether illustrative or evocative, ephemeral or concrete, A Series of Fragments of Moments collectively speaks to the apparent dichotomies reinvented memory, loss and remembrance, the individual and the universal.
The exhibition will run from November 11 to December 9th in the Project Gallery of Arc Studios and Gallery. A preview reception with an artists' talk beginning at 6PM will be on Saturday, November 11, with the regular reception from 7-9PM The artists will discuss their works and their artistic practice, with an opportunity for Q&A from the audience.
