Components: a group exhibition & Lisa Liedgren: The Five Virtues
February 6 - March 15, 2003
FIRST THURSDAY February 6, 6 - 9 pm
Components is the theme for this exciting group exhibition featuring artists whose work is made up of a series of smaller elements. Components features work by artists from across the U.S., including: Suzanne Caporael, Jaq Chartier, Ben Dallas, Carlos Estrada-Vega, Teo Gonzalez, Gregg Renfrow, Mercedes Teixido, and Lynne Woods Turner.
Lisa Liedgren's The Five Virtues series is based on an interview
with the U.N leader Kofi Annan done in 2000 who often
draws from the quote below to help guide his
leadership. Each virtue is here captured within an
abstract pictorial organization using only single dots
and a grid pattern.
Dignity - Confidence - Compassion - Courage - Faith
Se eye ndzeye pa enum yi a, na eye barima (Gather the
five virtues, then you are a man).
--Fante tribal proverb
