{That} That's Life: An Exhibition of Artist Fellowship Recipients
August 7 - November 6, 2014
Reception: September 4, 2014 - 4:30-6:30 pm

Thatís Life features Connecticut artists whose work explores peopleís lives through different kinds of portraiture. Amy Bilden (Greenwich) creates sculptures and installations that are tributes to a life and the imprints left after that life has passed. Meredith Miller (New Haven) makes photographic portraits, sometimes inspired by modern art, to reveal the disconnection of life today and the psychology of her subjects. Kathryn Myers (Storrs) records video interviews with contemporary artists in India to document their lives in a country undergoing great changes, both progressive and destructive. Perry Obee (New Haven) paints people (often himself) and the rooms they occupy with recognizable imagery that is also spatially-disorienting due to abstracted compositions. 
Cara Vickers-Kane (formerly Willimantic) creates nude photographic portraits that recall historical images, challenging the viewer to question his or her personal perceptions and assumptions of beauty and cultural standards.
