C.C’s Art Garage & Gallery presents Emerging Artists: Collaborative Collisions, a group exhibition curated by SAIC MAAE Student Mary J. Saran. Open call artists and creatives to be announced soon. An opening reception will be held Friday, February 16th from 6-9PM. Gallery hours will also be extended through the weekend and can be found below.

Collaboration is a powerful and often an underutilized tool for developing as an artist. The goal of the exhibition is to bring local artists and creatives together in order to break down the boundaries between different artistic approaches, styles, and mediums. Collaboration can be interpreted in many different ways; from two artists with similar styles creating together, to mentorship, to inspiration. Some artists collaborate for emotional reasons, others for inspiration, and sometimes it takes more than one person’s skill set to complete a project. Whether it’s one or several of these concepts. Great minds have always come together to create, expand knowledge and discover fruitful collisions of practice.

Exhibition Collaborators: Alison Annear, Kimberly Leja Atwood, Devon Thompson, Alex Valinsky and Christie Chew-Wallace
