Art Center Sarasota exhibition features three diverse artists | Arts & Culture
Sarasota, Florida -- One explores the impact of our culture of consumption, one celebrates our wrinkles, and yet another explores our subconscious. Three diverse artists are featured in an exhibition that opened this Thursday at Art Center Sarasota.
Chris Jordan's photography show called "Running the Numbers: Portraits of Mass Consumption" takes a close look at American culture. For example, the image entitled "Paper Bags" appears to be a depiction of a forest, but upon closer inspection, the viewer instead sees stack upon stack of paper bags.
The work of this Hawaiian artist is impressive, just because of its size. The smallest image is more than 6 feet wide.
Wojtek Sawa's photographic installation celebrates the wrinkles running across our skin. The Sarasota-based artist portrays wrinkles as badges of honor that help tell a person's story. And her works include anecdotes from the lives of her subjects.
Taylor Robenalt, another Sarasota-based artist, explores our minds and dreams with ceramic sculpture. Her work has been described as mythical and otherworldly.
Art Center Sarasota is holding an opening reception for this new exhibition on Thursday, May 24, from 5-7 p.m. The gallery is located at 707 N. Tamiami Trail.
