Event description
Exhibition celebrates and highlights the spatial confine of 144-square inches

About this Event

At some point throughout their careers, most artists will impart upon the viewer a small square window into their world, called a 12” x 12”. This spatial confine of 144- square inches, two-dimensions equal on all sides, lends the artist a perfectly balanced emptiness with which they use to freely express themselves, utilizing a vast array of subjects, styles, and mediums. Therefore, by imposing this spatial uniformity on themselves, the artists can counterintuitively create a diverse vibrancy in their work. Every artists’ 12” x 12” then functions as a contradiction; a collection of these pieces is both a display of the artist’s individuality, and a cohesive assemblage of equivalently sized works of art.

Harmoniously dissonant, uniformly distinct, these artists represent a surge through the conformity of everyday life. The Gallery at WorkWell wants our artists to activate this philosophy in their work. We aim to break through the mold of the traditional office setting, encouraging interaction between art, business, and community. In this, our third exhibition, artists break through their own mold: the canvas.

On view through June 15, 2019, the exhibition continues the dynamic narrative of the Gallery @ WorkWell to find alternative spaces, foster a community of contemporary artists, and to allow a variety of ideas to surface, and collaborative initiatives to follow
