Opening reception: Saturday | March 18, 2017 | 6 - 9 PM
Brand Library & Art Center is pleased to present "Man Made", an exhibition that explores the urban ecology of our built environment through the distinctive artwork of seven remarkable women: Jacqueline Bell Johnson, Anita Bunn, Chelsea Dean, Jennifer Gunlock, Jenene Nagy, Michelle Robinson and Sinziana Velicescu. Each artist, through their own unique practice, honors the physical act of creation and expands the language of environmental engagement. By exploring different ways of seeing, representing and connecting ubiquitous forms, shapes and objects in our surroundings, the artist abstracts reality; resulting in beautiful, anomalous truths, seemingly prophetic vistas, and meticulously rendered constructions. The exhibition features installation, sculpture, printmaking, photography, drawing and collage.
