The Artists' Alphabet #1: The Great

A is for artist.

A is for alphabet.

A is for “The Artists’ Alphabet #1: The Great Recession”.

This project brings together eight artists to explore the theme of the Great Recession using the structure of an alphabet.

The idea is simple: each of the participating artists creates a piece of art for a letter in the alphabet. All 26 pieces are then combined into a book. The concept for this initial project is "The Great Recession" - responses, strategies, concerns, and thoughts related to the current economic meltdown. Anything from hope to panic to pragmatic advice to feelings of hope and liberation.
The group exhibition features the actual artworks created for the book, as well as the published book project.

About Project_210
Project_210 works to increase the visibility of accomplished artists through dynamic exhibitions of their work and by providing fertile community interaction–with each other and the general public. Giving attention to the diverse cross-section of artists working today, Project_210 maintains a philosophy of inclusion: with no limits placed on media. Artists with very divergent practices have the opportunity to exhibit their work, while the community benefits through attending talks, workshops, and presentations related to the exhibitions. Project_210 is a collaboration of artists Quinton Bemiller and Chuck Feesago.
Gallery hours are 12pm – 5pm Thursday through Saturday or by appointment.
