Art Out: 5-50 Gallery Presents "Afflatus"
Photographs by Andrés Mercado
June 23rd marked the end of “Afflatus” at the 5-50 Gallery. The exhibition included twenty artists’ works, with their own modern twist on classical works, strengthening connections from the past and the present.
Afflatus serves as an homage to long standing techniques, while celebrating modern art. The exhibited artists draw lessons on techniques and compositions, while creating something rich with humanity. Continuing this tradition, the artists in Afflatus make a strong connection between past and present. Themes of feminism, politics, and even punk rock all walk alongside these recreations of these paintings, reminding viewers of the timelessness of century-old work.
The exhibition was curated by Suzanne Unrein and Amy Hill. Exhibited artists included Deborah Brown, Charles Browning, Sydney Cash, Sherie Franssen, Barbara Friedman, Kathleen Gilje, Alexander Gorlizki, Yonadav Greenwood, Linda Griggs, Julie Heffernan, Amy Hill, Michael Mapes, Ruth Marten, Alex Melamid, Janice Nowinski, Michael Rees, Kyle Staver, Mary Ann Strandell, Betty Tompkins, Suzanne Unrein
