"Ya Feel Me"

Lori Greene


Minneapolis, MN – Four women artists collaborate to create an exhibition with images and forms that are visually and/or physically addictive; testing the relevance of examination not only by sight and touch, but also through the perceived state of mind, to evoke a feeling, a particular sympathy, impression or conviction. Opening Reception January 15, 2011 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Artists Lori Greene, Stephanie Morris, Dorothy Johnson and Dee Henry Williams utilizing photography, ceramic and textiles, lead viewers on an artistic journey that encourages an understanding of their perspectives. Highly creative and flexible in their use of materials
and approach and deliberately producing images that deliver memory and illusion alternatively, the artists seek to provide contemplation and surprise.
Organized and curated by Minneapolis-based artists Christopher-Aaron Deanes and Shirley Robertson, “Ya Feel Me” is an attempt to explore ideas about “allure.” The exhibition will answer the questions: What images scream to be touched? Can a visual item compel someone to seek to touch it against their will or better judgment? The goal is to evoke sensations to the challenge “Ya Feel Me?”
Artist Dialogue: February 18, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. Free.
