Shelter is a curated exhibition of artworks that collectively explore the notion of ”shelter” as imagined or experienced by individual artists. While ”shelter” is often thought of as a place of safety and refuge, as in shelter for the homeless (or for those battered, addicted or otherwise afflicted), the shortcomings of a society that has generated such “refuges,” suggest the darker side of what ”shelter” might mean. And then there are our personal notions of “shelter …” Hopefully, the homes we had grown up in were places of caring and love, but we certainly know of others that were compromised by fears both real and imagined; the experiences of being stranded, alone and vulnerable. How artists deal with such ambiguities is explored in this exhibit. As conceived by 14 Sculptors inc., SHELTER currently features nine of our member artists.
Shelter features the work of Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Esther Grillo, Bernice Sokol Krame, Niki Ketchman, Siena Gillann Porta, Carl Rattner, Herb Rosenberg, and Chuck Von Schmidt.
