Anderson Creative is proud to invite you to our April exhibit, opening this coming First Friday, April 1st, from 6-10 PM. Stop by the gallery to get a peek at this contemporary take on an historical artistic practice – THE EXQUISITE CORPSE!
“What is THE EXQUISITE CORPSE?” you may ask. One of the earliest games invented by the Surrealists, it was a kind of collective collage of images in which three artists would work on one piece of folded paper. The first artist would draw or paint a head, then fold the paper, providing only some guide lines for the second artist to follow as they created a torso. A second fold would happen and the third artist would tackle the legs. Sound fun? We thought so – and so we’ve invited 48 artists to create 16 corpses for our April exhibit. Located around the country and working in a variety of different styles and media, the artists were grouped randomly and won’t – like you – know what their corpses look like until we join the varied pieces and parts on First Friday. As the weather warms, stop on by to appreciate the beauty – and randomness- of the human (ish) form at THE EXQUISITE CORPSE exhibit!
The exhibit will remain on view through Saturday, April 30th, during regular gallery hours, Wednesday-Saturday, 12-5. The gallery will be closed Good Friday and Holy Saturday. More information can be found at http://www.andersoncreativestudio.com.
