Group Show of Work by Forty Artists in All Media at Ferrin Gallery

PITTSFIELD, MA.- ReObjectification: Art + Object is a group show of work by forty artists in all media featuring artists who directly reference existing art, objects or found materials that inspire their artwork. The exhibit explores the relationship between the source material and how that information is translated, recontextualized or presented. Both two and three dimensional formats including photography, sculpture and painting are presented in the exhibition. The exhibition at Ferrin Gallery, organized by Leslie Ferrin and Julia Dixon, features gallery and invited artists in a context that reflects dominant common themes in contemporary art. While some artists created specific artworks for this exhibition, all were selected for their known use of found object or appropriated imagery. For those who work directly with found materials, their work also serves to express social values of recycling, reuse and green plan
