Play: 31st Annual Strathmore Juried Exhibition
Zoma Wallace, Juror
Tue, March 21–Sat, April 29
Play is a pathway to connection, innovation, and renewal. We use play to sustain our creativity, build relationships, and cultivate a love of life. Play can be done in isolation or in groups. It means action in athletics, rehearsal, in music, and in drama; it is the material to be animated. Play works with restrained rules, or it can be the act of breaking rules. It can be formula and pattern, or it can be experimental and adaptive. Play transcends age and species, occurring shortly after birth and is observed in animals of the earth and ocean. We invite artists to “play” both in representation and in abstraction, but most significantly, in an enjoyable form.
