acrylic on panel

A series of 10 x 8 inch paintings exhibited in the gallery for the purpose of being borrowed by patrons for the duration of the exhibition. Patrons were encouraged to rehang the works in their homes, workplaces, and community spaces. The idea was to have the exhibition ultimately take place outside of the gallery and the to allow the paintings to become meaningful objects as they became embedded within the daily lives of their viewers.
