Art & Barriers

 

 

Artists have long been at the forefront of social change through revolutionary and, at times, subversive means of transcending both physical and hidden boundaries. Contemporary art often acts as a mirror for barriers within all societies, challenging viewers to confront oppressive social, political, or cultural divisions. Can art be the catalyst to break down these confines? What barricades have you encountered that have impacted not only your work as an artist, but your life and belief system as well? Art & Barriers pays homage to all artists who daily break through limitations of any kind.

Art & Barriers will be a juried DŌSHI Gallery exhibition on view at the State Museum of Pennsylvania from July 20 – December 7 2014. During the Susquehanna Art Museum’s transitional period into our new location in Midtown, Harrisburg, we are continuing to collaborate with area arts organizations for exhibitions and educational programming space.

 

Important Dates:

  • Sunday, July 27: Opening reception at the State Museum of Pennsylvania 2 – 4 p.m. RSVP here!

The Art & Science of Color at Whitaker Center

The vastness of color, whether it is reflected, projected, or processed, presents a distinct opportunity for individual perceptions. Often it is the essence of mood, a lens through which we understand the material world. As optical science continues to expand our understanding of color as a physical phenomenon, the potential for artists to utilize color as a tool for expression is boundless. We ask each artist to consider the subtle possibilities of color at the heart of a work of art, and the long-lasting sensory impressions left on the viewer.

The Art & Science of Color is a juried DŌSHI Gallery exhibition on view at Whitaker Center from June 13 – August 22, 2014. During the Susquehanna Art Museum’s transitional period into our new location in Midtown, Harrisburg, we are continuing to collaborate with area arts organizations for exhibitions and educational programming space.

Lost World/Found World at the State Museum of PA

 

January 17 - June 22 (exhibition dates have been extended!) at the Susquehanna Art Museum’s Doshi Gallery in The State Museum of Pennsylvania.

Find a selection of photographs from the opening reception here.

Lost World / Found World is a group exhibition by regional artists that features mixed-media installations, paintings, photographs, and works on paper. Artists have long delighted in the “lost and found,” whether it is through a line, color, or a concept. Both abstract and representational, this body of work can be associated with exodus and arrival, searching and awakening, and beholding a new reality. Seek out the lost, and show us what you have found…

New to this show! We invite gallery visitors to utilize QR codes to hear the artists explain their ideas and the processes used in creating their works.
