The Center for the Arts has adapted their August Third Thursdays event to allow art enthusiasts to meet the artist, Erin Noel. This event has been modified with public safety in mind and will feature a one way walk through of the gallery exhibit followed by a Q&A session outside in the parking lot. Third Thursdays is first-come, first-served. One at a time, each party will enter through the front door, view the gallery and then proceed through the new theater to the back parking lot where the artist will be available for questions.
When asked to describe the current exhibit titled Unfolding, Erin Noel provided the following Artist Statement: The landscape, our personal experience, and our society is subject to intense compartmentalization and segmentation over time, at least in the culture in which we find ourselves. This show represents a variety of explorations of that reality. From explorations of segmented landscapes to internal compartmentalization, these visual explorations reveal something about who we are. Making these works outside on the porch in the stillness of a COVID spring, or inside on the dining room table in the dead of winter, entails an unfolding and increased awareness of just how tangled we and our landscape have become. This show is an expression of that unfolding.
Gallery guests have the opportunity to meet the artist on Thursday, August 20 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. as a part of The Center’s Third Thursday series. Masks are required and social distancing is a must for anyone not in the same household. The Center has one-time use masks and hand sanitizer on hand for visitors. Learn More
