CONNECTION - a collaborative exhibit with art represented from Inclusion in Art
On display through January 3
Inclusion in Art, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing racial and cultural diversity in Oklahoma's visual arts community, combines the vibrant, thought provoking artwork of Nathan Lee, Samia Allaw Dempsey, Behnaz Sohrabian, and Paul Medina in our newest exhibit, CONNECTION.
"The language of creativity has always inspired me as an artist and as a curator. Its connection to humanity is so absolute and immense that we sometimes fail to see it," said Nathan Lee, artist and curator. "The idea of the different ways that art unifies us is the basis of CONNECTION. The artwork of CONNECTION speaks to one's soul, conscience, and to that very thing that is so hard to put a finger on; aesthetic intelligence."
The artwork for CONNECTION ranges from completely non-objective to work steeped in social commentary and introspective spiritual meditation. It would seem that the diversity of the art in the exhibition could prove to be too open and unconnected. On the contrary, the vision of all of the artists of CONNECTION share a similar gift; the ability to make one feel.
The purity of what connects us as humans is what the artists explore and it is at the core of the work.
