We're pleased to announce that our new exhibition, Family Portraits, is on view until April 22. Curated by Evelyn Rydz, the show brings together the work of seven artists - Cobi Moules, Christine Rogers, Megan and Murray McMillan, Dustin Williams, and Tanit Sakakini - who explore complexities and possibilities of family structures and interactions, both real and constructed. A family portrait is a visual account of each family’s dynamic world and the systems, roles, relationships and stories that are part of them. Through staging, altering and reinventing, the artists in this exhibition investigate themes of family and identity. These works play with the boundaries and assumptions that typically define this familiar piece of our collective culture.
The opening reception will be Friday, April 8, 6-8 p.m. There will also be an artist talk and Q&A session with curator Evelyn Rydz, Cobi Moules, Christine Rogers, and Megan and Murray McMillan on Friday, April 1, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Both events are open to the public.
Next up in Foster: one of our most anticipated shows of the year, the 2011 AP Student Exhibition, featuring works by this year's AP Ceramics, Photography, and Drawing students. The show will run from May 9—June 4, 2011. The reception will be Wednesday, June 1.
