Forget What I Said is an exhibition featuring the work of eight artists: William Brayton, Brenda Garand, Carol Keller, Cathy Osman, Tim Segar, Joe Smith, Deborra Stewart-Pettengill, and Erica Wurtz. The exhibiting group is a community of artists loosely affiliated through collegial association, friendship, teaching, and the practice of making sculpture as well as other art forms. Although they have known each other for many years, to exhibit together or to have their work be in context with one another is an unusual and valued opportunity. This will be the second exhibition for this group, and their goal for this exhibition is to create a visual dialogue across the disciplines of collage, painting, and sculpture. Each artist shares an interest in the formal language of abstraction and a deliberate use of material. Paper, paint, steel, wood, aluminum screening, clay, and porcupine quills are some of the materials used to convey ideas in two and three-dimensions. The content of their works separate undeniably one from another, yet in conversation the pieces reflect and reveal new relationships within individual works, as well as in response to the collective dynamic. In a time where the spoken and written word often describes what the viewer is looking at, Forget What I Said, places emphasis on seeing and bringing your own experiences and conclusions to the work.
