Duration: August 22nd - September 3rd.
Opening Reception: August 22nd, 5 - 6:30pm.
Art is a living thing. Artists plant the seeds of Art, and the audience cultivates Art’s growth. A Forest for the Trees is an exhibit of freestanding artworks that form a veritable forest of art within the gallery. Artwork is both figuratively and physically “off the wall,” and seemingly growing on the floor throughout the gallery. Artworks vary in size and shape furthering a sense of growth. The viewers move freely through the labyrinth of the artworks, becoming themselves an intrinsic element of the aesthetic forest.
Artist and curator Airom put an open call out for the exhibit artists from across the US. Part curatorial, part installation this exhibit brings together artists’ works from a wide variety of genres and mediums, grouping them into an ocean of art. The show will be run until early September.
Gestalt Projects is located inside bG Gallery in Bergamot Station G8A, next to Hiromi Paper. bG specializes in artists who have blurred boundaries between traditionally divided art approaches in their work with a particular emphasis on bridging ‘inside’ and ‘outside,’ and ‘highbrow’ and ‘lowbrow.’ Bleicher Project Space is an exhibit area within the gallery that has a focus on experimental projects and collaborative installations.
