Parallel Visions, the latest exhibition at Creativity Explored Gallery, shows work by artists from five different arts and disability organizations in conversation with work made by selected artists at Creativity Explored. The resonance felt between these artists, working in disparate studios across the globe, is uncanny and inspiring.
This show assembles a group of artists who emphasize drawing processes and repetitive mark making to create their work. A range of artwork is on view, though three distinct themes emerge: abstract works; figurative ink drawings; and, work comprised of poetic text and number systems.
“For the first time in our gallery, work by Creativity Explored artists will be seen as part of a larger context. We’re excited to share this extraordinary work from across the nation and beyond with Bay Area audiences,” says Amy Taub, Executive Director. As a whole, this exhibition is a survey of global contemporary trends in the arts and disability movement – through pairings and small clusters of work reveal intimate relationships and conjure their own fascinating dialogs."
Exhibition Dates and Times: March 8 through April 25, 2012; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm; Thursday 10:00 am to 7:00 pm; Saturday & Sunday 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm
