Alchemized Dimensions: Group Exhibition
Praise Shadows Art Gallery is pleased to present Alchemized Dimensions, the first exhibition in the Praise Shadows Mentorship Program. Organized by 2021 mentees Sahara Curry and Liana Rice, with Curatorial Advisor Leah Triplett Harrington, the artists in the group exhibition include Caleb Brown, Samantha Fields, Brian Christopher Glaser, Garrett Gould, Kate Holcomb Hale, and Sa’dia Rehman. The works include drawing, installation, sculpture, painting, and textile.
Alchemized Dimensions presents artists playing with perception and exaggeration, giving familiar ideas the chance to become unfamiliar once again. Process and intuition are applied, as the artists allow their instincts and understandings of color, line, shape, and gesture to take over. The artists selected use so-called “traditional” subjects or materials—portraiture, still life, wood, or charcoal—to recalibrate them into fresh articulations of everyday life. Familiar scenes or materials alchemize into an experience that takes the mundane into a new dimension.
