Mask(ed) sheds light on masks of all forms–from the sculptural forms artists create, to the invisible masks we wear as part of being human. “The show explores the ideas and metaphor masks embody by presenting a range of works from a variety of artists,” says curator and sculptor Kathleen Sherman, who invited nine artists to present works.
The opening reception of Mask(ed) – an invitational exhibition curated by Kathleen Sherman will be on February 1, 2018 from 5- 8 pm at Art Gym, where most of the artists will be present. The reception includes a masked performance piece, and opportunities for viewers to engage with masks themselves.
Exhibiting artists are Kathleen Sherman, David Ocelotl Garcia, Tracy and Adam Teitelbaum, Karole Sharpe, Daniel Crosier, Adolfo Romero, Wayne Salge, Phil Eastwood and Cal Duran.
Kathleen Sherman creates sculptural works using a variety of natural and man-made materials. One of her signatures is the use of gourds as a base, which she says inspire her to create organic, lively forms.
