Part to Whole: The Making of Art, the Artist, and the Artist Group
On view in The West Gallery
With artists Mia Hall, Robyn Horn, Dolores Justus, Barbara Satterfield, Sandra Sell, and Elizabeth Weber
There can be a great divide between the viewer who stands before a work on exhibition and the artist who creates that work in solitude, dedicated to the making of it, often for years before the art is shown. Without knowing the process (the how), or the concept (the why), engaging with a finished work of art can be difficult. This exhibition tells the story of how work is made, why work is made, who the artist is, and how ongoing conversations among like-minded artists often lead to wholes greater than the sum of their parts.
