Recession Art Show


What is the Where? The perception of art is shaped by its location, but art can be a location itself. What is the Where? asks how artists can respond to the relationship between location, identity, and perception. The group show focuses on installations and photography by 15 artists: Louise Barry, Katrina Boemig, A. Bonnel, Heejung Cho, Stephen Eakin, Ryan Frank [photo] Ian Addison Hall, Jess Levey, Elias Necol Melad, Lawrence Mesich, Evan Roberts, Patrick Serr, Katie Shelly, Celia Tobin, and Matt Woodward.

Recession Art is an arts organization devoted to helping emerging artists show and sell their work while giving art lovers and collectors of all incomes an opportunity to buy original work at affordable prices. We believe that in spite of hard economic times, artists and art lovers don’t have to put their passions on hold! We aim to break open the traditional gallery model and make showing, buying, and enjoying art more accessible for people who have been hit by the recession. We believe that we can start our own art stimulus plan today!
