An Exhibit just opened in San Pedro that sounds interesting and right up our alley… wish i could have gone to the opening. it was curated by Victoria Bryan.
here’s the scoop – “Nature of Inquiry, Part One” The exhibit includes thirteen artists from San Pedro, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Portland and Dublin: Amerinda Alpern, Ellen Bay, Bronwen Casson, Susan Dampf, Jan Govaerts, Sabina Haque, Dar Horn, Joan Mueller, Jon Nakamura, Hilary Norcliffe, Angelica Sotiriou, Molly South, Katie Stubblefield and Sayon Syprasoeuth
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6–9 pm
The Nature of Inquiry, Part Two will be shown in June 2008.
“The project will span an eleven-month period. Nature of Inquiry, Part One, the September exhibit at The Loft Gallery, includes one piece from each artist. The artists chose the works to characterize the inquiry they will be pursuing through their art making for the next nine months. Members of the group will exhibit the results of their inquiries in Nature of Inquiry, Part Two, at The Loft Gallery for two months beginning in July, 2008.
For some artists, this process will be a continuation of a lifetime fascination with particular questions, concepts, or media; for others, the project is an opportunity to explore new materials and ideas that have been lurking in the back corners of their imaginations.”
