Top Regional Artists take on Technology in “WWW.”
Representing a collection of work across a range of genres, “WWW.” explores how the internet has changed human relations and how we process time and experience. Curator Toni Bennett Easterson, a Northfield artist, is intrigued with the way in which the universal theme of the exhibit has captured the imagination of some of our region’s most prominent fiber and textile artists.
“Visitors will be treated to a thought-provoking exhibit of remarkable quality,” commented Easterson. “Most of us agree that the role of art is to interpret reality in some creative manner. ‘WWW.’ offers refreshingly diverse takes on the ways art reveals the life-changing reality of contemporary communications technology. Themes range from how the internet has deeply altered social interaction to how people manage the relatively new phenomenon of limitless information.”
The exhibit is sponsored by the Northfield Arts Guild in partnership with the Northfield Public Library and Art on Water Gallery. It opens at the Guild’s Center for the Arts at 304 Division Street, Northfield, on Wednesday, June 29th, and runs through August 6th. A Grand Opening Reception will be held on Friday, July 8th, 6 - 9 p.m., when juror Karen Helland will discuss the exhibit and reveal artist winners of the first, second and third place cash awards.
