Eight local female artists will display their work from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight and Saturday, March 8 at the historic Steinfeld Warehouse Community Art Center, 101 W. Sixth Street. Each artist will occupy an entire space in the warehouse with their art.
Each installation invites the viewer to become part of the work by entering the work. Unlike a regular visual exhibition where one approaches art as 'other', to view and observe from the outside, each installation in this exhibit invites the viewer into itself. An observer behind the viewer, sees that first viewer as part of the piece. And so on.
This is NOT an exhibition of one's artwork as if the artist were setting up a mini art exhibition of their work. Instead the exhibit challenges the artist to allow the space to have a substantial say in the direction of the piece. The artist will respond to the space, which is the spark, that brings the installation out from within the artist.
The artist are encouraged to bring their own lighting equipment, video and sound to company their art. BBQ Rush Food Truck will be parked near the event. Click here for information and RSVP on the Facebook event page.
