The Arts Fund
JuxtaPOSE - Community Gallery Exhibit
Friday, May 18, 2018 — Friday, July 13, 2018
The Arts Fund is pleased to announce the opening of JuxtaPOSE, an exploration of portraiture curated by Ashley Woods Hollister of the Squire Foundation. A reception will be held at The Arts Fund Gallery on Friday, May 18th, 2018 from 5-8pm during the Funk Zone Art Walk. JuxtaPOSE will feature work by Connie Connally, Summer Roman, Lindsey Ross and Leslie Lewis Sigler.
How do artists negotiate the portrait? A classic conundrum. All portraiture—form aside—communicates a personality with a story; and yet, this story always assumes the artist and her process: In JuxtaPOSE, Connally, Roman, Ross and Sigler explore portraiture in their respective mediums: figurative painting, wet plate collodion photography, surrealist drawing and still life painting. When assembled together, their disparate practices create a dialogue that challenges the traditional understanding of portraiture, revealing individualities, particularities and narratives.
