In Home: In Response is an art show in the tradition of the Salon des Refusés. The show spans many mediums such as photography, sculpture, and video and includes local and national artists. What ties all of the work together is that it is work about the home, displayed in a home turned art gallery for one evening, and was all rejected from the same show. The curator, Kerry Adams, saw an opportunity in the group e-mail rejection from Current Gallery’s Made Home. After going to the show at Current, she contacted all of the rejected artists. In this e-mail she said, “I had the opportunity to see the Made Home show at Current Gallery today. I was impressed with some of the work there and was so glad I had the opportunity to see the show. As I was walking around the small gallery I also found myself wondering what other good quality work had to be rejected from the show either because of size or because of basic curatorial choices like which works would work best together in the given space…. I am now interested in curating a show of works that were rejected from the Made Home show as a way to continue the excellent quality of the original show while showing new artists and different works.”
She received many postive responses and the upcoming show features the work of the following artists: Kerry Adams, Tara Campbell, Barrie Cline, Christine Dehne, Wendy DesChene, Marisa Dipaola, Alex Ebstein, Suzannah Gerber, Amanda Gogel, Jody Isaacson, Dana Jerabek, Matthew Keeney, Eliza Lamb, Jon MacNair, Jenee Mateer, and Marla McLean. The reception and show is Saturday March 15th from 6:00- 9:30 pm at 3211 Abell Avenue.
