A View from Within
May 31, 2019 - July 6, 2019
All individuals bring their own perspective to what they see and how they interpret it. The artist’s view reflects their view of the world around them. Artists can isolate the view or expand the view, direct our vision or simply allow us to set our own boundaries. There may be no boundaries. This exhibit invites artists to establish their own view from within and to direct or not direct the viewer’s perspective. The frame of reference for each individual as they view the work will translates differently. The artist will invite the audience to peer into what otherwise may lay dormant and unfamiliar to them. All artists are challenged to share their view of the world from any perspective in the medium of their choice. Invite others to consider your field of vision as the mirror for what they see our world to be. Invite them in to see your view.
