DESCRIPTION

Home features a national group of artists who invite us to rethink our notions of space, place, and home. Working in diverse mediums including painting, sculpture, video, and photography, these artists investigate everything from interiors and abstract concepts of what makes a home, to scenes of devastation and abandonment. Artists completely deconstruct the four walls we build around ourselves, producing art that is playful, surreal, familial, and at times, disturbing.

The opening reception will feature a live performance of Femme Maison by Home artist Elizabeth Cayne modeling her wearable houses.
