browngrotta arts is a leading contemporary gallery of international textile, mixed media, and dimensional art, which represents many of the artists who have helped define modern fiber art since the 1960s. Owner Tom Grotta will lead a tour of the gallery’s annual Art in the Barn exhibition Art + Identity: an international view, followed by hors d’oeuvres, wine and a curated cocktail.
More than 50 international artists, reflecting five continents, will take an expansive look at identity and art in a global world. The identity that each explores may be personal, political, social or cultural; it may reflect the influence of a hometown, country of birth or adoption, a place visited, or a region whose art has made an impression, an artistic or scientific movement or a broader focus on the effects globalization. Works by artists from, or influenced by, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the UK will create an intriguing dialogue about the influence of culture, geography and personal experience and spur questions about the universality of art.
