18 Sep VICARIOUS
NOVEMBER 1, 2018 – JANUARY 5, 2019
Through the theme of empathy, Vicarious invites dialogue around issues related to veterans and the veteran experience, using art as the vehicle for discussion and reflection. This multi-disciplinary exhibition will feature paintings by San Francisco-based Dan Bayless, drawings and paintings by Charlotte-based artist and Army Veteran Wil Bosbyshell, glass work by Pomona, California-based artist and Vietnam veteran Michael Aschenbrenner, prints, objects and sculpture by Drew Cameron, installation work by Charlotte-based artist and Navy veteran Suje Garcia, a documentary produced by Susie Films, a virtual reality project produced by writer, academic, speaker and Army veteran Paula Kranz Broadwell, and artworks from graduates of the Chicago-based CreatiVets Program. The exhibition will invite conversation around the power of art to reach into the psyche in a way nothing else can.
The gallery is partnering with Veterans Bridge Home, which will receive 5% of profits from art sales from the exhibition.
