RSVP NOW: UPCOMING VIRTUAL ARTIST TALK
"ACTUALLY, I'M FROM THE SUBURBS; I JUST SAY DC BECAUSE IT'S EASIER" VIRTUAL TALK
TUESDAY, JUNE 8, 5:30 PM
Join Art Enables and visiting artist Aaron Maier-Carretero for a virtual talk highlighting our current exhibition, "Actually, I'm from the suburbs; I just say DC because it's easier." With work by Maier-Carretero and Art Enables resident artists Michael Haynes, Paul Lewis, Raymond Lewis, Max Poznerzon, and Nonja Tiller, this full-gallery installation simulates the interior and exterior of a suburban family home formed from a collage of physical objects and illustrated elements. Actual pieces of furniture co-exist with household items drawn on paper or directly on the flat surfaces of the floor and walls. Maier-Carretero's paintings on canvas present multifaceted scenes of domestic life along with works on paper by Art Enables artists that stand in for family photos and other household ephemera. Spaces and divisions are concrete and illusory – indicated alternately by actual walls, suggestions rendered in graphite lines, and even our own memories and expectations. Guests will have an opportunity to join the discussion and ask questions. Free to attend, registration required.
