Disconnections
Mar
9
to Apr 13

Disconnections

Disconnections, curated by Dan Overdorff, will feature six artists including internationally displayed artist Chris Cites from Seattle. Disconnections is a term that can mean becoming isolated, separated or even the act of detaching one thing from another. It is a word that is continually present in every facet of our world today. In conversation or by watching the news, you may find yourself feeling removed from the world or even the person you are directly talking to. The objective of this show is to introduce the viewer to varying views of the word “disconnections” through the eyes of six different artists who are all at different points of their creative careers. The idea for this show was developed through conversations between show curator, Dan Overdorff and visiting Seattle based artist, Chris “The Bag Painter” Crites. Also featuring Pati Beachley and Samantha Lantz.


"It is my belief that we are far more connected to each other and our environment, oftentimes in ways we may not even realize. Each of our actions, choices and beliefs effect our shared world. It seems so much these days that we are led to see our differences by the media and people in power so that it can be harder sometimes to see what we all have in common. By using images from the past I am making connections and attempting to explore this shared experience of our existence. It is a process of seeing things in a different way. This is often a disconnection from the images’ original context but they still tell stories and have meaning."

"Stitches" Opening Reception
Jan
12
to Feb 23

"Stitches" Opening Reception

You Are Here announces the opening of Stitches. The exhibition showcases YAH Resident Artist Pamelajean Werner,  YAH Satellite Artist Jess Higo Walbridge, and guest artist Imani Russell.  Werner has decades of experience as a weaver and maker of rag quilts. Her work is inspired by both traditional and contemporary insights. Walbridge is a master crocheter whose intention is “to bring ‘women’s work’ into a fine art setting” with her references to monsters and powerful women. She has developed her body of work by morphing classical concepts, feminist undertones, and monstrous themes into unexpected fiber pieces.  Washington DC area artist, Imani Russell (indigo’s friends.com) creates her cloth dolls using worn clothing, found fabrics and unusual objects: a tradition passed down from her mother and grandmother.  She is inspired by the Gullah, a distinctive group of African Americans originally rooted in the southeastern U.S. during the 18th century.  Their origins in Sierra Leone endowed them with immunity to malaria that often left them surviving their slave masters, so they were able to cultivate and sustain a unique culture that still survives as a national treasure.  Russell says, “Natozake Shange’s novel Sassafras, Cypress and Indigowas my introduction to Gullah culture. . .This story still informs my work.”
