 Everything we do as artists and as people, in general, begins as a vision. We look at a blank canvas, an empty room, a vacant lot, a white monitor screen, a yellow-legal pad. We have an idea or a vision and we express it. And then, we rewrite, repaint, redo, reorganize, redecorate, reconsider, revise. In this show artists take a step back and a fresh look at their practice. How has their vision changed? What influenced that change? How has the aging of the work as well the artist added deeper insight and more meaning? In turn, we hope this exhibition inspires you, the viewer, to reflect on your own (re)visions – Beverly Logan.

 This New Members Exhibit will showcase works from our newest cooperative members, and will be curated by Sabiha Iqbal and Beverly Logan, and coordinated by Lynda Andrews-Barry and Beverly Logan. We hope you will join us in welcoming and celebrating our new artists!
