Carnegie Art Center Artists' Reception: Stillness and Motion
This Event Occurred in the Past.
The public is invited to the opening reception Saturday February 8, 3-5 pm for Stillness and Motion, a mixed media and interactive installation by Patti Ruskey, Lynn Rozen, and Jason Toupence.
“Stillness and Motion is an exploration of preverbal creativity of the stillness inherent in movement and the movement inherent in stillness.
A winter landscape reminds us of the period of rest and stillness that comes before the movement of spring’s rebirth, the quiet contemplation that leads to new ideas. Stillness is the empty vessel waiting to be filled.”
This installation is interactive. You are invited to add your own weaving to the nest or the weaving wall.
Stillness and Motion opens February 6 and runs through February 22, 2020.
Exhibitors invite you to make art, move and interact with this exhibition at a Community Art Experience, on Saturday February 15, 2-4 pm.
The Carnegie Art Center, Southern Minnesota's largest dedicated visual arts gallery, has provided arts experiences to our community and gallery opportunities for our local and regional artists since 1981.
