Thousand Words 

 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but these works, rendered in painting, collage, sculpture and photography are only getting started at that count. Tackling complex themes of identity, symbolism and the art historical cannon, each one will offer something new to the viewer with every encounter.  

 

 

About Screen Time

With the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we’ve moved the annual Artist Project show to a nine-week series of online exhibitions, running April 1 - June 2, 2021. Every Thursday at noon, a new themed exhibition launches featuring seven artists with a daily artist feature on our social media channels. From painting and drawing, to sculpture, prints and photography, the shows will support an incredible breadth of work, all available for sale directly from the artists.  During this time when we’re spending so much time at home, consider supporting an independent artist and treating yourself to a fresh perspective with an original work of art.
