The seemingly common term place can relate to an almost infinite variety of associations.

For example, place can relate to a sense of security, impermanence, immigration, pride, social roles, geographic location, and atmosphere.

Place is particularly important to Art Works Downtown because a major function of our public offering is creative place-keeping. By maintaining a 140-year-old building to house and share visual arts, artist studios, low-income housing, retail businesses, and more, Art Works Downtown offers a place for constructive and creative interaction.

You are invited to explore this dynamic group exhibition and to expand your own Sense of Place.

Featuring artists: Nancy Bardach, David Barry, Debra Bibel, Lisa Clarke, Margaret Jo Feldman, Paul Ford, Rich Fowler, Michael Goldman, Ellen Gust, Tania Houtzager, Linda MacDonald, Jack McTiernan, Cindy Ostroff, Cynthia Rettig, Roz Ritter, Emily Van Engel, Sue Weil, Erin McCluskey Wheeler, June Yokell, Bing Zhang

Juror:  Griff Williams, owner and director of Gallery 16
