2nd Floor: SUMMER 2013 ARTIST EXHIBITION April 26 to June 15, 2013 Featuring the work of: Natalie Abrams, Natalie Bork, Ginny Boyd, Jennifer Parham Gilomen, Aspen Hochhalter, Linda Luise Brown, and Jason Watson.
McColl Center for Visual Art invited Cynthia-Reeves Projects to organize an exhibition embodying the spirit of connectivity that serves as the basis of our mission to foster connections between artists, community, and the creation of contemporary art through residencies, exhibitions, outreach, and education. The resulting show’s title, Connectivity, evokes this mission in the ways it invokes the implicit concept that ideas and their manifestations share common threads, hinting at the invisible tethering of thought to inspiration and creativity.
Featuring a diverse selection of works representing the convergence of art and science, Connectivity explores the underlying threads of connection found in natural, social, and technological systems. Exploring the overt and indiscernible links among complex levels of organic life, the works presented in Connectivity visually articulate concepts of intersection and mapping and how we envision our place in a broader context—from the micro to macro worlds.
Each of the artists on view demonstrates their vision on the dynamic pursuit of connectedness through his or her unique visual lens. Exhibiting artists include: Janet Echelman, Yizkah Elyashiv, Beth Galston, Beth Ganz, John Grade, Daniel Kohn, Jonathan Prince, Shuli Sade, George Sherwood, and Claire Watkins, many of whom are featured in the Duke Energy collection here in Charlotte.
