[Postcard Art: Cayen Robertson; Design: Jeremy Thornton]
We invited artists to submit recent works for a special exhibit inspired by Ann O’Hanlon’s sensibilities & aesthetic, as we complete our 50th Anniversary year. Some of the elements the jurors were considering through the lens of Ann O’Hanlon’s perspective include:
- Is the work EXPLORATORY?
- Has the artist taken RISKS?
- Does the art EVOKE?
- Are all parts loved and attended to?… “a work of art is only as good as its tiniest part.”
- “Energies take precedence over design.”
- “Humbleness and innocence are just as valuable as precision and accuracy.”
Jurors: Cayen Robertson & Kris Gordon
Cayen Robertson is an active and exhibiting artist. She recently retired after 35 years facilitating the O’Hanlon Saturday Perception Workshop. “For me, making art is an instinctive process. I feel music in the work, specifically, the sounds of free form improvisation. It’s a bit like improvising with the materials as my instrument. I choose the materials and begin a dialogue. I delight in the mysterious unfolding of the images developing in front of me in the moment. It is vital to me that all the elements have a voice.”
Kris Gordon is a long-time member of O’Hanlon Center for the Arts. She is an exhibiting artist, gallery installer, workshop facilitator and member of the Exhibition Committee. “I have been painting since 1973. Ann gave me another way to see art. A wonderful gift. I have met the most wonderful people through O’Hanlon center, interesting and gifted. I feel most thankful for all these years at the center.”
