Hidden Messages

Featuring Marilyn Artus and Amy Sanders

On Display | September 9, 2017 - November 25, 2017

The art of Hidden Messages investigates identity and place through ceramics and mixed media. The exhibition, exploring communication through visuals, symbols, and Braille, is poetic and profound, detailed and experimental.

Marilyn Artus’ work consists of ephemera, insignificant things that were meant to only be enjoyed or used for a short time and then discarded—cleared checks, old slides, tickets, measuring tape, S & H Green Stamps, and matchbook covers to name a few. These things have a lot to say about who we are and how we live. “I cut up and sew back together these pieces of our history,” Artus said.

An avid maker of objects, Amy Sanders finds that many of her creations exist at the intersection where her father’s prolific, outdoor energy meets her mother’s love for sophistication and the home. She is dedicated to handmade, functional objects that have an ability to draw in a viewer and create a moment of connection.

Opening Reception: September 21, 2017 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

The Opening Reception is Free to the Public
