Intimate Geography at Acorn Gallery
- The Acorn Gallery, a project of the Arroyo Arts Collective, will
sponsor a group show called "Intimate Geography -- getting to know a
place" to open on April 8 in conjunction with the NELA Second
Saturday gallery walk. "Intimate Geography," curated by Deborah
Thomas and Linda Anne Hoag, features mixed media and installation
work by artists Edith Abeyta, Daniel Marlos, Jennifer Murphy, Thomas
and Hoag. The work offers a collection of imaginative and personal
perspectives on how one relates to a particular locale. Themes of
mapping, memory, and personal encounter with the natural and social
environments thread through artwork including a scavenger hunt staged
in Highland Park and a shower curtain covered with tiny photographs
of the Arroyo Seco water table.
Opens April 8, 5 - 10 p.m. at the Acorn Gallery, 135 N. Avenue 50, Highland Park.
Runs through May 6.
