Mind Place: Exploring the Psychology of Place
On view May 10 - July 12, 2018
Reception: Thursday, May 10, 2018; 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Creativity Explored, the premier nonprofit visual art gallery and studio for artists with developmental disabilities, presents Mind Place, a new exhibition exploring the psychology of place. From depictions of Ferris wheels that evoke memories, African landscapes, to psychedelic abstractions of subjects that inhabit another space entirely, the exhibition leads the viewer on a journey to ethereal environments that are physical yet based in the mind.
The exhibition includes selected works by Ian Adams, Jay Herndon, Camille Holvoet, Laron Bickerstaff, Kathy Wen, and Marilyn Wong. Curated by Visual Arts Instructor Leeza Doreian.
Evoking both physical and imaginary worlds, the multimedia artwork in this exhibition offer the viewer diverse perspectives into the production of a visual space that is both interior and exterior.
Emotional, provocative, and inviting narrative, the more than two dozen artworks included challenge traditional viewership by expanding visual depictions of a place or space into the subjective territory of a “mindscape.”
