Current Art Exhibition
Homage | April 2017 – September 2017
Homage features work from 30 artists from around the country. The exhibition is based on the premise that every artist has endless inspiration – that every work of art that an artist has seen has probably influenced or inspired them in some way. With Homage, The Vendue’s art director asked each participating artist to choose the one artist they identify as the most inspiring to them and their work. She challenged them to pay homage to their inspiration by selecting one of their works and use that to reimagine it in a way that would make their inspiration proud. Emily states, “It is my hope that every artist will be able to take this in a direction that fits their own medium, composition, technique, style, symbolism, current events.” Among the participating artists are Susan Harrell, David Michael Bowers, Molly B. Right, and Lulie Wallace.
