NURTUREart is pleased to announce a closing reception for the current exhibition On Hold curated by Alma Egger, and featuring artists: Margaret Coleman, Jeff Feld, Tracy Grayson, Jennifer Gustavson, Allison Maletz, Andrea Suter, and Jeanne Verdoux. On Hold aims to alter our perception of daily occurring pauses, transforming anxiety-producing events into opportunities for reflection.
In conjunction with this exhibition, NURTUREart’s Education Program has been working with a group of 25 students from Juan Morel Campos Secondary school to explore the concept of ‘everyday objects’, encouraging them to re-evaluate the idea of wasted time. During the exhibition, each student was given a sketchbook where every day they chose a different quotidian object from their lives to spend time with and either draw or write a story about. An iteration of these sketches and stories will be presented at the closing reception for this exhibition on Friday, August 23.
