I Am Me by Sarah Faith-Matthews.

Fellows Group Exhibit: Identity
On our upper level we present Identity, a group exhibit featuring our Studio Gallery Fellows. In their words: Identity is the distinguishing character or personality of an individual. It makes us who we are, and our family, environment, and culture shape everything we have and will become. Our self-image and how we love ourselves help us portray our humanness in our art. Art symbolizes our place in the world, determined inside ourselves and not by society. Because of this, our art has no limits.

Los Cactuses de la Costa desde el Espacio/Satellite View of the Last of the Copiapoas in the Wild by Irene Pantelis

Irene Pantelis: Cactus of The Sands
Irene Pantelis’ Cactus of the Sands will be available in our lower gallery. The show features a series of ink drawings inspired by the copiapoa cactuses of the Atacama Desert. Precariously patched together from ink veils washed on fragile paper substrates, the drawings are guided by the copiapoas’ primitive geometry, stark environment, and complex history, engaging narratives of displacement, memory and ecology.

Gambian Market Madonna by Andrea Kraus.

Andrea Kraus: Madonnas
Andrea Kraus’ exhibit Madonnas will be located in our lower gallery. A “Madonna” is an idealized virtuous woman; someone worthy of veneration. Inspired by Byzantine icons and their traditional artistic use of golden halos to express regality and spiritual reverence, artist Andrea Kraus took inspiration for this exhibit from photographs she took during her travels. The faces of Andrea’s Madonnas are all based on real women. Each piece is inspired by the beauty of women from different cultures in common places such as markets, yet each woman so clearly possesses an uncommon and unique beauty.
