Take Root (phrase): 1) to become established, 2) to grow and draw nourishment. This exhibition features eight contemporary Southern artists that have rooted themselves in their identity: Allison James, Sarah Gayle Carter, Trudi Norris, Case Baumgarten, Sunny Goode, Fred Bettin, Nikki Oliver, and Desiree Petty. The idea of taking root can be within a place, community, earth, ourselves, or all of the above. Each artist, with their own unique artistic style, explores what it means to them to take root and bloom in their voice.
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 17th, 6–8 pm (social distancing protocols will be in place)
Exhibition runs September 8th – October 24th.
