Reception for Self is a River
The McLean County Arts Center presents Self is a River, an exhibition of self portraiture featuring work by Mel Keiser, Nicole White, and Chris Wille in the Armstrong Gallery, January 9 through February 28 2015. A free and public Reception will be on Friday, January 16 from 5 to 7 pm.
Self is a River features the work of three artists exploring the concept of self as constant and yet perpetually in flux. Co-curated with Bloomington artist Melanie Scott-Dockery, she notes, “In reference to the existence of all things, Heraclitus said you can never step into the same river twice. By using themselves as subject, artists have revealed the changing nature of being.” The photography based work of Mel Keiser and Nicole White paired with Chris Wille’s new media work demonstrates this desire to capture fleeting moments in an eternal evolution.
This exhibition was generously sponsored by Vitesse Cycle Shop and Often Running.
