Curatorial Statement

Exhibition Posted Online: Monday, October 7, 2024 at 10 am MT

 

Guest curated by Naomi Clement, Always. Maybe. Sometimes. will showcases artists whose work deals with the uncomfortable and murky territory that lives between loneliness and belonging. A no man’s land of grief that sits in our bodies as we long for a place/person/feeling/time/connection that may not exist. 

How does one make work that is about absence? About the space between loneliness and belonging?

“A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion finds the thought and the thought finds the words.” —  Robert Frost

 

Participating artists include Nicole Aquillano, Jessica Brandl, Naomi Clement, Janice Cormier, Carole Epp, Jill Oberman, Ashlyn Pope, Amanda Salov, Camille Sales, and more
