"MAPPING AS SOURCE"

JURIED EXHIBITION AT ARTS BENICIA
EXHIBIT RUNS JULY 29 - AUGUST 27, 2017
991 TYLER ST. #114, BENICIA, CA 94510
KATHERINE HARMON, JUROR

My painting, "Bridge To The Coast", was juried into this unique show that features works inspired by the art of cartography.

“Artists chart singular perceptions rather than assert any collective truth.” (Katharine Harmon) The artist map conveys personal territory, calling out to viewers, “I Am Here”. Art maps can be used for exploration of the personal, the political, or as a tool to investigate the experimental. Mapping as Source focuses on the many ways artists use or create maps for personal expression.
