Artists as Docents: Sunday, June 28 at 2pm

Join the artists featured in the VisArts exhibition, These Mirrors are Not Boxes, for a tour through the gallery and a discussion of their artwork focused on the issue of identity.

Curated by VisArts’ first Emerging Curator, Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, These Mirrors are Not Boxes examines the complexities of contemporary identity through the work of six local female artists: Amy Hughes Braden, Milana Braslavsky, Anna U. Davis, Nora Howell, Annette Isham, and Lisa Noble. The exhibition explores the surprising, alternative, even subversive means and ways identity is formed, presented, confronted, and challenged when marginalized personas are brought out of the fringes.

The VisArts Emerging Curator Program offers a unique opportunity for an emerging curator to work with an experienced mentoring curator to develop and present an exhibition and to assist in the presentation of the mentor’s exhibition in the Kaplan Gallery at VisArts. This is the first year of this outstanding new program.
