TACIT
2019 Friends' Juried Exhibition

May 21 - September 26, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, June 7, 2019
5 - 9 PM during first Friday Art Loop

Juried by Cynthia Hawkins

Tacit, the unspoken force at the core of this year's Friends Juried Group Exhibition that implies the manner in which each artist interprets the world. The tableaus underlying their personal narratives or visions are told through the artist's handling of the material in varied, covert, and self-evident ways.

The common thread weaving through the individual work is their tacit ability to break free from rigid or confined rules. Art is not only about bold color harmony, mark-making, representative imagery, or purely abstract concepts, but often connotes unspoken messages meant to invite dialogue that unlocks the human imagination, thereby freeing its limitations.

This exhibition includes 14 regional artists who work with conventional and avant-garde processes, and examine the subtle ways in which to communicate and translate emotions, identity, ritual, or experience. The interconnection is rendered with repetitive linear marks, shapes, and nuanced color.

Guest juror Cynthia Hawkins remarked, "The works submitted were inclusive of the greatest range of styles and media with a variety of understandings of content and narrative. The collection of art works illustrates clearly the breath of approaches to art, and that indeed we all have something to say about the world we live in. Congratulations to all."

The 2019 Friends' Juried participating artists are Sherry Brilliant, Bill Buck, Candace diCarlo, Marlowe Emerson, Irwin Freeman, Linnie Greenberg, Su Knoll Horty, Jack Knight, Gail Kolflat, Chloe McEldowney, Rafael Montoya, Aleksandar Popovic, Merrill Smith, William Spiker, and Peter Trieber.
