July Group Show
On View: July 10 – August 3, 2014
Reception: Thursday, July 10, 2014, 6-8pm
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Despite attempts at objectivity and distance, it could be argued that all methods of expression are somehow personal, somehow related to the hand of the maker. For many artists, their identity is inextricably linked to their artwork, incorporating elements of biography, personality, gender, race, and sexuality. For others, it is hinted at in their process or use of material. For this open call exhibition, UFORGE Gallery asked artists to submit work that reflects their own identity, whether through self-portraits, emotional abstractions, political responses, or biographical musings. Artists were asked to consider how they define themselves, and how their experiences, struggles, and beliefs have shaped their artwork.
