sight/unseen - a visual arts show
May 21-26, 2016 (11-1 Sat; 11-5 Sun; 10-2 Mon-Thur)
Concord Community of Artists is thrilled to announce our new art show - "sight/unseen"
on display from May 21-26, 2016 at The Artist's Den - 1913 Salvio Street, Concord
Viewing hours: May 21: 11am-1pm; May 22: 11am-5pm; May 23-26: 10am-2pm
Several local musicians will perform throughout the weekend, and artist Joani Share will host an art demo/discussion about her work on May 24, 1-2pm.
Each of our 14 participating artists was asked to interpret and express an aspect of their identity. Some are exploring this concept through their ancestry, others are creating work that speaks to their ethnicity, culture or nationality. Each piece will include a written narrative about their inspiration, artistic approach and what they discovered about themselves during the process. A wide variety of mediums and styles will be represented, from mixed media to painting to altered art.
Our individual identities are comprised of the qualities, beliefs and distinctive characteristics that make us unique and different from each other. How we understand and interpret ourselves today - in the present - expresses the continuity between where we came from (our past) and what we aspire to be (our future). What a wonderfully reflective approach for artists and art students to consider when creating personal works of self-expression!
We are honored to present "sight/unseen" in partnership with The Artist's Den, which is operated by Futures Explored, a non-profit organization that provides work training and recreational programs for Bay Area adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Artist's Den provides weekday art programs to their clients and operates an art gallery to exhibit and sell their work.
