Xchanges Annual Members’ Exhibition and Open House

Exhibition runs through to Sunday, December 20th.

“Ellipsis” [i-lip-sis] (n): the omission of one or more words that are superfluous or able to be understood from contextual clues... a sudden leap from one topic to another... a set of dots indicating an omission or a pause...”

The member artists of Xchanges present an exhibition of their own highly individual takes on the rich array of concepts offered by the word “ellipsis”. As all art involves the selection of what to put in or omit, sudden leaps of inspiration, and pauses to think, those three little dots can serve as the artist’s mental model of the process of art-making. A connection as much as an omission, the ellipsis reminds us that communication in art relies on societal and experiential clues.

Meet the artists in their studios and experience the vibrant creative community that is Xchanges. Many artists will have small works and cards for sale in their studios, and refresh­ments will be served — come join us for this festive celebration of art and those who make it!

New this year — “The $50 Wall” — fundraiser sale of small works donated by members — proceeds benefit Xchanges

A Mustard Seed food donation box will be available if you wish to make a donation.

 
Gallery Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 1:00–4:00 p.m.


Our NEXT Exhibition (Jan. 8th through 31st)

Suzanne Bean’s Transitory by-products

Opening Reception: Friday January 8th, 7–9 pm
Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 5 pm

“Transitory by-products is an exhibition about our changing perceptions based on new sculptural material and the dialogue that is generated from the work. I work with mass-produced commodity products such as balloons, styrofoam cups, and pipe cleaners, which leads me away from object reference and finite questions.
