‘Self Portrait with Bolo’ oil on panel by Paul McMillan

‘Sexual Terrorism War Against Women, Accountability Playing Cards’ by Toni-Lee Sangastiano

This group exhibition asked artists to express how they interpret personal views of the known and unknown world through artworks that are not always cheery and light, albeit still aesthetically pleasing. It went so much deeper than that with thought provoking work taking hard looks in regards to our current political climate, race relations, toxic masculinity, domestic terrorism, and the United States’ place in the world.

‘Out in the Cold’, collage by Ryan Geary

We also looked for beauty in the darkness; that you may find in decay, in death that leads to rebirth, and in diving into your own soul to attempt to answer the difficult questions and grow from it. How do positivity, truth, and humor play into this learning and/or unlearning? The attempt is to cause the viewer to think, to appreciate, to take a step back, in horror…or in awe.

February 2018: ‘HUSK’ – Artwork on Parasitic Relationships

HUSK

Artwork on Parasitic Relationships

February 2 – 24, 2018

Opening Reception:
First Friday Art Walk, February 2nd from 5 – 9pm

‘Me Too’ (detail) – by Beth Robinson and Annika Rundberg


The host/parasite relationship in nature is a strange, fascinating one. There are many reasons why this relationship exists, including population control, boosting immune response, aiding decomposition and supporting the food web. While most parasites do not kill their hosts, what compels those that do? In our culture, the word “parasite” has a decidedly negative connotation. Though literal parasites are seeking only to live, parasite/host relationships present between humans result in toxic power dynamics, financial instability, breakdowns of bodies and minds, and loss of benefit to both parties over time. The work in this exhibition was made to explore parasitic relationships in all their forms. Where do we get the energy we need to sustain ourselves? Are those sources sustainable or part of a system that ultimately depletes us? This group of female artists met over the course of six months to discuss their interpretations of the show concept. Each artist is exploring the theme from her own unique perspective. The work includes depictions of parasites in nature in addition to examinations of family dynamics, childbirth, beauty, sexuality, and dysfunctional relationships in the context of parasitism.
