Shiny Things Exhibition
March 3 - April 29
March 3rd – April 29th, 2023
Opening Celebration Friday, March 3rd 6 – 9pm during First Friday Art Walk.
Featuring BlacJak, Sheree L. Greer, Ciara Hendrix, Niki Lopez, Dara Mathis, Erica Mohan, Sharene Mullings, Khaulah Naima Nuruddin, Lizz Straight, and Marie Vickles.
Opening on March 3rd and running through April 29th, Shiny Things is presented in recognition and celebration of National Poetry Month. Exploring the intersections of distraction and attraction inherent to boldly asserting ourselves in a world that often prefers us to stay in the shadows, ten artists are anonymously paired, one visual and one literary, to create original work reckoning with what it means to shine–individually and collectively–across identities informed by intersections, contradictions, and communities.
All works presented are new and original, and the show reimagines the traditional ekphrasis by making the process reciprocal rather than one direction. The resulting work contributes to a conversation about thriving versus surviving and seeking brilliance rather than resigning to expectations and the status quo.
