ACTIVE featuring 5 Florida artists:
Russell Bellamy, Jen Clay, Nick Mahshie, Sarah Knouse, and Cherie Saleeby.
ACTIVE explores work that encourages some kind of movement, action, or involvement from the viewer, ultimately activating the varying warehouse and gallery spaces fully. The majority of the works are 3 dimensional, placed in the center of the room, or on a large scale, asking us to move through, around, under, on, and touch. The works fill the space within the galleries and force the viewer to experience art on all spatial planes. Additionally, an underlying theme within the artists’ pieces that are shown is that of fantasy, childhood, and a representation of nostalgia, and appreciation of a place or time.
