Everyday Icon: An Exhibition of Artist Fellowship Recipients
April 23 - July 2, 2015
Opening Reception: 4:30-6:30pm, April 23, 2015
Everyday Icon features Connecticut artists whose work explores ordinary people, places, things, and ideas. Andrew Hogan (New Haven) uses his photography to explore the relationships among the ordinary social landscape, those that inhabit it, and the traces left behind. Brendan O’Connell (West Cornwall) paints the “everydayness” of things and people in American life using the interiors of Walmart as his subject matter. John O’Donnell (New Haven) creates installations that incorporate objects from popular media and consumer culture to examine social and cultural implications. Christine Osinski (Ridgefield) photographs young artists at the start of their journey to continually imagine and reinvent themselves and their work, placing them at the forefront of contemporary culture. Jessica Somers (Terryville) uses her photography to create visual metaphors reflecting her struggles, reflections, and fears pertaining to personal choices versus societal expectations in marriage and domestic life.
