Discovering Humanity Part II: The Fenced Farm – Camie Rigirozzi

After Humanity was Discovered by Camie Rigirozzi, she realized that neglecting to establish boundaries with the people in her life forced her to feel more pain than she wanted. The animal imagery that drove Camie’s last art exhibit is again the vehicle she uses to describe what it means to have boundaries between herself and those around her. She learned that emotional boundaries are how we keep our deepest selves safe while moving through this world. Building on her radical use of mixed media collage and utilizing gel plate mono printing with photo transfer techniques, Camie explores the idea of farm animals, fenced and safe from hurting each other. Camie is pleased to participate in Mo’Print (Month of Printmaking) with this exhibit.

The Fenced Farm is a place where boundaries are firm and protective. Lines are drawn between the pigs and the cows, the roosters and the sheep. The goats have their own pen. Some fences are light and fragile but cannot withstand a bull’s charge; other fences are solid walls that keep all out, and all in, with no chance of crossing.

Camie states, “I felt the need to utilize image to understand what it meant to create emotional boundaries. The idea of allowing people into my life while knowing when to say “no” has always been a difficult idea to navigate for me. This year I discovered my boundaries, and gel plate printing, and I got addicted to both.”

…On Other Planets – Lisa Korte

Lisa Korte allows her imagination to run freely about our Solar System, as she knows our time on Earth is futile, both individually and as a species. What have we done with this amazing evolutionary opportunity as humans to build, invent, nurture, and love?
Why has our intrinsic curiosity of other tribes, religions, and cultures been obscured by our need for power and domination? Lisa wonders how we can develop understanding and acceptance when our existence is after all completely random…Humans and our galaxy have about 97% of the same kind of atoms as stars.All materials in our bodies originate with residual stardust, and it finds its way into plants, and from there, into the nutrients that we need for everything we do.
Can we ever be One Solar System under the stars that made us?

Join Lisa on this journey, as she explores our planetary neighborhood: The Sun, planets, moons, and millions of asteroids, and comets.

The Core Annex will feature Wendi Richardson.

Wendi likes to experiment with mixed media elements, iced with a layer of oil painting.
She has settled into a regular use of recycled refuse that would otherwise pollute our landfills. You can frequently find reused styrofoam,wire, plastics, paper or architectural salvage incorporated into her work.

Wendi’s signature flair is her use of vibrant colors, macro views of florals and wildlife, and a song or two as part of her composition.

The Annex is available to rent for non-member shows. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
