HUMAN CONDITION

exploring the body as subject

February 13 - March 22, 2020
Opening Reception: Sunday, February 16, 4 - 6p

This exhibition will be a visual exploration of the human condition, asking artists to capture what is it that makes a person. From the classic nude, to abstract and impressionist treatments, to pieces that touch on the basic concept of humanity— a wide variety of interpretations will be included.  Beside exploring the physical form, artists are asked to consider how a person’s personality, emotions, challenges, preferences, prejudices, and experiences can be visually represented.
