ART OF SLOW: ART GYM’S FIRST MEMBER EXHIBITION
(Denver – October 2, 2015) Art Gym Denver is proud to announce their inaugural member’s exhibition titled Art of Slow, running November 5th, 2015 – December 23, 2015.
Inspired by a Robert Hughes’ quote, our members have created work that provides a counterpoint to the frantic nature of the holidays, presented as an opportunity to pause and discover the joys of looking closely at art.
“We have had a gutful of fast art and fast food. What we need more of is slow art: art that holds time as a vase holds water: art that grows out of modes of perception and making whose skill and doggedness make you think and feel; art that isn’t merely sensational, that doesn’t get its message across in ten seconds, that isn’t falsely iconic, that hooks onto something deep-running in our natures. In a word, art that is the very opposite of mass media. For no spiritually authentic art can beat mass media at their own game.” –Robert Hughes
