Would you like to join us for Slow Art Day?
April 11, 2015, is Slow Art Day, an annual global event that aims to transform the act of viewing art. On a single day each year, people all over the world are encouraged to visit local museums and galleries to look at five pieces of art for an hour or more. After the slow-viewing exercise, participants enjoy lunch with the artists to talk about their experiences.
Join us at Gray Loft Gallery to view the current exhibit COMMON GROUND, a group show of seven artists whose collective vision is based on the basic elements of light, color, form, gesture. Quoting Jon Wessel: “At its most basic level, a mark or gesture is about the transfer of energy from an artist's hand to a surface or substrate. It recalls a moment in time, or – on a grander scale – a moment in history. On an existential level, it declares, "I exist."
