Functional Misrepresentations highlights six artists whose work uses the shared language of objects to discuss how they can act as vectors of memory; both personal and societal. The included artists, Leila Cartier, Randall Cleaver, Billy Colbert, Christina P. Day, Han Wang, and Mallory Weston show how objects can hold onto memories and be reconstructed to tell mythical tales of what was, and what could have been.
In the hands of the artists of Functional Misrepresentations, once familiar objects are elevated to take on new meanings that challenge us to consider the ways in which we take what seems to be true for granted.
Each year, Park Towne Place hosts rotational exhibits, each with its own unique theme and featured artwork.
The goal of Park Towne’s permanent collection is to be interesting and vibrant. Each piece was carefully selected from among hundreds of submissions by local, national and international artists and includes site specific commissioned pieces.
The Shape of Tomorrow highlights the work of five artists, all of whom’s work utilizes color and form to offer the viewer a chance to escape into abstract other-worlds. Throughout the galleries, the work of Charles Emlen, Greg Kelly, Tremain Smith, Larry Spaid, and John Howell White take unabashed joy in their included forms and color pallets to provoke the visual senses of the viewers.
