By Any Means Necessary: RedLine's 4th-Annual Juried Exhibition
Curated by Jessica Kooiman Parker
September 15 - October 7, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, September 15, 6:00 - 9:00PM
Artists in the 21st century have to be shrewd to stand out. They often employ multiple disciplines to produce notable work. They challenge the world around them and explore unusual notions. This collection exemplifies artists using any means necessary to express themselves. Subject, medium and/or technique are pushed in innovative ways and combinations. Space is redefined, color bends and flows, marks become obsessive, organic life is raw and distorted. These visual entrepreneurs transcend the norm by provoking innovation and wonder.
Participating Artists: The Women's Art League, Fred Annes, Drew Austin, Shannon Belardi, Sarah Bozaan, Katie Caron, Diane Cionni, Trey Duvall, Jessica Forrestal, Brian Fouhy, June Glasson, Joshua Goss, Erica Green, Clay Hawkley, Patricia Howard, Helios Lucida, Suchitra Mattai, Collin Richard, Fazilat Soukhakian, Jodi Stuart, Louis Trujillo, & Kaitlyn Tucek.
