Opening Reception: November 10, 4-6 p.m. | Art Enables Studio & Gallery
Join Art Enables’ resident artists on November 10 from 4 to 6 p.m.for the opening reception of “Selected” a peer-curated exhibition featuring the works of Art Enables resident artists.
Complimentary wine and refreshments will be provided. All are welcome.
Art Enables resident artists explore curation and exhibition design in “Selected,” the latest exhibition at Art Enables Studio & Gallery. Each resident artist of Art Enables was randomly given the name of one of their fellow artists and then asked to select that artists strongest work from their portfolio. Some chose to base their selections on technical merit and composition, like Shawn Payne’s selection of Jamila Rahimi’s “Tulips” or Violet Lucas’ selection of Gen Gaines’ “Nausea,” while others selected work because they enjoyed the subject matter or found the content interesting, such as Payman Jazini’s selection of Robert Corcoran’s “Ocean City.” For many of the artists in the studio, this was their first opportunity for curation, allowing them to take their time to patiently survey the breadth and fine details of their fellow artist’s work.
