2022 Faculty Show – Exploring Growth
This is the 5th installation of a Faculty Exhibition from Abington Art Center teachers and staff.
In this year’s faculty show, we asked our teachers and staff to contemplate the meaning of growth and the ideas, associations, and questions that surround this concept. Growth is a familiar concept for teaching artists who witness and encourage growth within their own work, the work of their peers, and their students’ work. As we encounter other peoples art, we are forced to consider questions around meaning and process which inherently spark evolution. Although growth is an organic aspect of life, it can also be challenging and even painful. Even when change poses challenges, growth is a positive force. Whether physical, intellectual, or metaphorical, growth is evident everywhere as an inherent aspect of life. The selected pieces interpret growth in an array of forms, from sculptural work and jewelry, to photographs, drawings, and paintings.
As you walk through and explore the work on view we would like you to consider your relationship to growth.
Where are you growing?
Where are you resistant to growth?
How can you invite positive change?
