The show will consist of over 100 pieces of 9 x 7" handmade paper, each worked on by a different artist, zipped together into one continuous, exuberant piece. 

Each individual piece will be for sale with 10% going to Planned Parenthood.

Nudge by Linda Kamille Schmidt
The Safe Harbors Ann Street Gallery's newest exhibition, Language of Patterns, opens with an Artist Reception on Saturday, July 16, from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public.  
     The Language of Patterns exhibition brings together fifteen divergent artists, showcasing varied media and works that highlight the endless possibilities of creating visual sequences while fashioning a language that arises from these timeless forms called patterns.
     Throughout history, patterns have played a key role in creating and art. We find examples of pattern designs being used in the earliest pottery and textiles; the architectural ornamentation of Islamic architecture; Medieval illuminated texts, and in the works of the great nineteen century decorative painter - Gustav Klimt.
     In the mid-1970's, we saw the development of the Pattern and Decoration movement, which provided artists like Joyce Kozloff and Judith Pfaff, creative alternatives to the austere aesthetic of Minimalism and Conceptualism. In today's contemporary art, artists continue to turn to pattern designs as a language for artistic expression, while blurring the line between high and low art; as exemplified in the vibrant and heavily decorative patterned works of Kehinde Wiley.
     The artists in this exhibition are part of this tradition. In each work, these artists are making use of pattern designs through gestural lines; colours; repeating designs, fiber and textures, and have developed their own language of patterns to express the way they think, see, and experience space.
     Regardless of their approach or materials, these artists as a whole are utilizing patterns as a formal element of art, producing works of visual splendor whilst pushing the boundaries of their subject or concept.

Artist featured: Michelle Benoit, Jaynie Gillman Crimmins, Robyn Ellenbogen, Kathy Goodell, Theresa Gooby, Sarah Hulsey, Minhee Kang, Susan Knight, Jaanika Peena, Linda Kamille Schmidt, Ashley Shellhause, Greg Slick, Jeanne Tremel, Bart Vargas and Eleanor White.

This exhibit was curated by Virginia Walsh and will be on view through Saturday, August 20th.
