About the Event

Exhibiting artists include: Paula Bausch, Chris Behrs, Jeanne Bjork, Jeanne Bril, Deborah Brooks, Judy Grochowski, Frank Juarez, Pamela Merkel, Allison Olsen, Leah Robertson, Tanner Teipel,  and Jason Van Roo.

The breadth of work ranges from traditional to experiential, exposing influences from inner and outer worlds. It reflects how these artist-educators translate concepts, processes and aesthetics from the past and present into the future by conveying them from their experienced eyes to novel ones. Stepping into this exhibit immerses the viewer in an environment curated daily that enables everyone to engage in the power of images, stories, symbols, objects and spaces that enshrine time and culture. These works grasp all nuances and vagaries found in the minds and practices that tend fertile ground for creative work on its own terms, while living the wonderment that allows young artists to see beyond current horizons.

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 5th at Var Gallery 2nd Street
