Emmanuel Gallery's Annual Staff Curated Exhibition
January 2nd - 23rd, 2015
Opening Reception: January 2nd 4-7pm
A series of acts leads to a resolution. It is through these resolutions that lessons are learned, identities formed, systems broken, and histories debated. The determination to commit to these acts end in both failure and success. By considering the processes of resolve, images become clearer and materialize into focus. In Resolution, the audience is given a first person point of view of the study of the construction of an experience through its relationship with objects. These objects become devices that explore complex ideas and use visual culture to discover answers to questions or solutions to conflicts. This phenomenological approach to creating shows the artists intentionality and self-awareness through a myriad of experiences. Throughout the year, we are bombarded with negative images in mass media, but a new year brings a positive attitude and a chance for renewal. Through our interaction with innovative objects- culture moves forward. These artifacts of optimism are seen in Resolution.

We invite you to join us on January 2nd from 4-7 pm for an opening reception including an interactive performance of "crafting" with Stephan Herrera. Bring an item of clothing and write down your New Year's resolution if you would like to see the words written or printed onto your clothes. Enjoy some art, crafting, recycling, and intention-setting as we open the New Year and think of our resolutions.
