Functionless Form, Functional Décor

November 20, 2009 -  January 16, 2010
Opening Friday, November 20th from 6pm-9pm.
@ School 33 Art Center

Featured Artists: M. Angelo Arnold, Shannon Donovan, Chiara Keeling, & Allison Reimus
Curated by Philippa P.B. Hughes with assistance from Elizabeth Ward

The works in this exhibit reconsider the questions of art as décor, and décor as art. These four artists consider their creative output and its relevance to space, aesthetic, and taste. They perceive and appreciate the prospective place in which their artwork will reside. Like the pop artists, they remove familiar from its context and isloate the objects to provide contemporary interpretations and definitions of fine art.

Philippa P.B. Hughes has established a reputation for creating inventive and collaborative environments in which people who would not normally have the opportunity to interact with each other or with contemporary art gather to experience art in alternative and stimulating ways. Philippa founded The Pink Line Project with a mission to (1) inform and inspire the emerging art collector, and (2) foster intellectual and artistic innovation fueled by the transformative power of art.

School 33 Art Center is dedicated to providing opportunities for artists through exhibitions, art classes, workshops, a Studio Artist Program, and special events.
