Voice of Nature
opening 11/22/2019, 6-9 PM
on view through 1/3/2020
ace/121 Gallery is proud to present Voice of Nature, the annual exhibition featuring work by artists who live in the ACE/121 artist community. The gallery’s inaugural exhibition, Civitas, opened in May of 2017, introducing the vibrant inter-generational community of ACE/121 to the city of Glendale as a permanent fixture in its contemporary cultural fabric and artistic output.
This year, with Voice of Nature, the ACE/121 community proposes a themed group show with a vast scope, presenting artworks of diverse medium ranging from painting to poetry, music to collage and ceramics.
Responding to the prompt “What does nature have to say? What is your voice of nature?”, residents of ACE/121 have created an exhibition that represents a chorus of voices under a single roof. The artists find nature in their everyday: not only in the natural world, but also in the nature of humanity, the figure, materials, small moments as well as those large forces which bind us all together.
We invite you to hear these voices – and this common call – at the ace/121 Gallery as we close out 2019 and welcome growth with the coming of a new year.
- Ben Evans, ace/121 Gallery director
