About the Exhibit
POLARITIES – Art in the Arthouse’s second annual community show in Claremont reflects polarities of artistic vision within a shared space of magnetic interaction. The artworks all create pointed juxtapositions, grounded and fantasy-based in their nature. Viewers encounter a forest opening its door and a dancer engaging his spirit. They discover a space absent of subject and a subject absent of anything under the floor of the sky. An ancient statue of a baby rhinoceros is stoically reflected in dancing lights that envision a new America. A parrot is caged while poppies roam free. Each artist within this collective unveils an unintentional interconnection with each other.
Individual works, tone, and vibration were created through a clear, positive manipulation of media. Sixteen unique and talented people have fused their personal vision, artistry, and craftsmanship to hone a professional oeuvre of artworks. The range of media includes photography, digital sculpture, painting, and mixed media, each inviting us to consider their message.
