Apr 2019 - Juried show "Untethered"
Apr 13 - Panel discussion (Mark Andres, Daniel Peabody, Amy Bay, Tamara English, and Kendra Larson)
What does it mean for a work of art to be beautiful in 2019? That question was posed to the artists who applied for this exhibit. The theme is challenging--in part because the contemporary art world has dubbed beauty a dirty word. Dave Hickey tried to rescue it from the onslaught of art criticism with his collection of essays in The Invisible Dragon in the '90s. The three artists William Park, Ruth Ross, and Poca Kim took up Gallery 114's invitation to challenge that critical taboo, and they reassert in their own ways the place of beauty in art. These artists presented individual work based in a powerful and moving quality embedded in a strong aesthetic, a key criterion in their selection.
