YOU ARE HERE

The unexamined life is not worth living.”  - Socrates                                             

US Poet Laureate, Billy Collins, is known for his ability to reflect on the world around him with wit and sincerity.  It is through his profound observations of the mundane that he creates meaningful impressions from the everyday. YOU ARE HERE is a group exhibition inspired by Collins’ poem, My Life, in which the poet metaphorically represents the complexities of his life thus far. Exhibiting artists parallel Collins’ work by utilizing the close examination and reflection of their immediate surroundings in the creation of their artwork.  The exhibition looks to investigate where artists draw their inspiration from and how life influences their work as artists.  It is through the process of slowing down and observing the world around us that we take the time to contemplate the meaning of our experiences.   Participating artists:  Terry Arena, Cherie Benner Davis, Jeanne Dunn, Monica Furmanski, Susan McDonnell, Devora Orantes, Catherine Ruane, and Christine Weir.
