August 25 – September 27, 2011
Opening Reception: August 25, 7-9pm
The confines of the artist’s studio allow the artist to focus, free of distractions, on the creative process. Both a place of solitude and freedom, the studio is where ideas come to fruition and the sometimes messy practices of art making are of little concern in regards to the space. The studio, however, with all of its usefulness, can also be limiting.
In an attempt to address the notion of isolation within one’s studio, The Distillery Gallery has challenged a group of artists to produce works beyond their normal individual control. “Make it Together” asks artists to collaborate with one or more fellow artists on individual pieces, thus surrendering complete authority by any one contributor. The results will be unique to each pairing and will encourage the participants to take risks they otherwise do not take in their routine individual processes.
“Make it Together” will feature collaborative works involving:
Hilary Alder, Gulay Apley, Aimee Belanger, Walter Crump, Alison Davis, Pat Falco, Josh Falk, Elizabeth Grammaticas, Stephen Holding, Vanessa Irzyk, Meredith Iszlai, AD Jacobson, KDONZ, Cassandra Long, Eric Love, Kenji Nakayama, Elizabeth Nicholson, Adam O’Day, Shana Paleologos, Danielle Spurge, Joshua Taylor, Nick Ward, and Dana Woulfe.
Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, August 25, from 7-9pm.
