This is the first show, here at Rehs Contemporary, where we had an open call to the PoetsArtists group. After receiving more than 100 submissions, Lance Rehs (curator), narrowed the selection down to just 30 works. In that process, a commonality began to emerge… the act of observation.
The act of observation is so central to the artistic process, it is only natural to explore that through an art exhibition! The title, I Observe, serves as a multi-dimensional way of understanding the exhibit… it touches on the artist's observations that are communicated through the work, the observation of something by the subject within the work, as well as the observation of the work by others.
We hope you will join us in this celebration of awareness… in a time where society seems to be ever fragmented, it is paramount that we strive for common ground; a sense of understanding. That starts with us being more in-tune with and conscious of our surroundings… the things we observe.
