Ancestors and Other Strangers
The work of Bobbie Polizzi and Christopher Charles Curtis
A collaborative show with CANVAS ArtSpace
November 9 -26
Artists' reception: November 9, 5-7pm
Artists' Talk: November 19, 4pm
The title of the exhibition refers to Polizzi and Curtis’ shared interest in old, found photographs and the mystery of the unknown sitters who inhabit them. “Ancestors and Other Strangers” attempts to explore this context from different vantage points. The show will also feature one piece that Polizzi and Curtis have created together. "I feel fortunate to have met Bobbie - we both share an affinity for old photos, doll parts, and strange objects,” says Curtis. Polizzi concurs. “I’m so excited to show with Chris. His work whispers, haunts, and speaks to the message of my art, which is to create stories for those whose stories have been lost,” she says.
