Blackbird Studios is very proud to present our last show of 2013, a group exhibit paying homage to the great Dr. Seuss. Come see work from dozens of your favorite local artists and discover new artists from around the world.
As always with our group shows, BBS promises an all around awesome art experience, transforming the gallery into a Seussian wonderland (complete with Whos!). So bring the whole family because this show will speak to the young and the young at heart.
An opening reception will be held during December’s First Friday, Dec 6, from 6p – 10p. The event is free and open to the public.
We have all played with dolls, but “These Dolls” are unlike anything you have ever seen! Blackbird Studios presents a brand new show by Ali Fathollahi challenging and complicating the idea of the doll as a child’s innocentplaything. From Barbie to G.I. Joe, and many in between, Fathollahi examines the dichotomies of men and women, human and animal, and the constructed oppositions in concepts of nationality and war.
All works are created by delicate assemblage and mixed media.
Please join us for the opening reception on First Friday, October 4th from 6p to 10p, to meet the artist. We will also be open Preview Thursday, Oct. 3 from 6p to 9p.
This September, Blackbird Studios is pleased to present the artwork of Lisa Dittrich in her solo show, “Domestic Bondage”.
From the artist’s statement:
This show is about lost identity, what defines us as a person. As women, from a very young age, we are programmed to fit a certain role or stereotype. The moment we get married, we lose our identity and become part of the unit. We have children, and we take on all these other roles in the community, and we lose ourselves into becoming a wife, a mother, a worker-bee, maid, concubine, guilted into domestication. As women we become enslaved to the basics of everyday life, losing the things that were important to us at one time in our younger lives.
I found fulfillment as I aged, realizing the importance of letting go of the bondage. As I aged and matured, I realized that it’s important to let go; to let go of the bondage and get back to myself, realizing what was once lost, now found. Now, my art is intertwined in the tapestry of my beautiful family life.
Join the artist for an opening reception during First Friday, September 6, 6-10pm. [Read More]
