Glen Arbor Arts Center Exhibits Take On Coronavirus, Contemporary Times
EXHIBIT: POWER TOOLS
EXHIBIT: ART IN A TIME OF CORONAVIRUS | A POSTCARD RESPONSE
September 11 – November 5, 2020
The Glen Arbor Arts Center explores the upheaval that characterizes contemporary times in two, new exhibitions beginning September 11.
Power Tools is a multifaceted, juried exhibition built on the belief that the arts provide us with powerful tools of expression. These power tools offer creative ways to comment, critique, examine and explore all manner of issues, and offer ways to begin negotiating a range of ideas, both new and old, familiar or foreign. The work of 17 artist from Michigan, Wisconsin and Oregon will be exhibited. Power Tools may be viewed in the GAAC gallery and on-line. Go to GlenArborArt.org and click on EXHIBITS. Works from the Power Tools exhibition are available to purchase. Go to the GAAC’s SHOP page.
Art In A Time Of Coronavirus is an exhibition of 97 hand-built postcards [4” x 6”] that present the maker’s personal response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Postcards were created from paper, polymer clay, fabric, recycled and mixed media materials by 33 people living in Michigan, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Washington. Postcards will be exhibited in tandem with the in-gallery exhibition of Power Tools. Most of the postcards are available for purchase, and are priced at $30.
The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor, and is open daily 11 am – 2 pm. Both exhibitions run through November 5. For more information go to GlenArborArt.org.
