You are invited to participate in a community exhibit
about perspectives and empathy:
What does it mean to walk
in someone else’s shoes?
Whose shoes do I choose to walk in?
How do we walk in shoeless lives?
Can we really view the world
from multiple perspectives?
Where is the intersection between
How does my compassion
deepen and broaden my humanity
and my response to other beings?
If these shoes are killing me,
how I do take them off?
Do our souls direct our soles?
We hope you will be inspired
to explore these questions
(and the many more that the title
and themes of this exhibit
may prompt in you.)
Explore your ideas
in whatever form makes sense for you,
and share your work
by being a part of this exhibit!
Participation is free
and open to all ages and experience.
All work that relates to the theme[s]
will be included. Some size restrictions may apply. Please call if your work exceeds 3’ in any direction.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: November 2, 2015
Community exhibits at The Art Garden are hung salon-style in our working studio, inspiring conversation and creative responses from visitors and art-makers of all ages. Each individual piece functions within the context of the whole exhibit (much like our lives within our communities.) Our hope is that each individual piece can shine at the same time that relationships between works are explored.
Performative work happens during our
OPENING RECEPTION on Saturday, November 7 (6-8pm)
Performances are at 7pm.
Please call or email by the submission deadline
if you would like to be part of the performance schedule:
This exhibit is supported by the following Local Cultural Councils:
Ashfield, Buckland, Charlemont/Hawley, Colrain, Conway, Heath, Leyden,
Plainfield, and Shelburne.
