& ampersand 4 show

The 4th annual Ampersand show is taking place this month, with an opening reception this Saturday, 7-10 PM. The Ampersand show is a group exhibition that celebrates the collaborative process, having all pieces in it the result of 2 or more artists collaborating with each other to create something. This is the third time Sam and I have collaborated on a piece for the show. Come see what we came up with, or make your way down sometime in January/beginning of February. I saw a few of the pieces when I installed our piece, and it's definitely a show worth seeing!

Show curator, Vicki Chau, describes the exhibition here:
"an annual art exhibition that celebrates collaborations between creative minds, where each collaborator brings a different skill, practice and perspective. Collaborations are a unique experience where inspiration, motivation, and different perspectives can influence the works created. The beauty of each work comes from how new ideas emerge, as part of the collaborations, where it would not have happened alone. It is never a perfect process. As you work off each other, you start discovering your own strengths and weaknesses. Either working harmoniously or clashing ideas, by the end of it, you never know how it’s going to turn out. There are 18 collaborative works, involving over 35 artists in all stages of practice and different disciplines. This is the fourth year of &ampersand, which has continued to inspire individuals to work together, creating something new."
