    Expressive Arts Institute- Building 201

    Martha Pace Swift Gallery From the Hands of Helpers: The Expressive Arts Institute Student and Graduate Show. For 15 years the Expressive Arts Institute has been turning out therapists and educators skilled in helping other’s create art for change and growth. For 10 years, those students and graduates have also had a chance to exhibit their own creative work. A celebration of the creative process, the show features ceramics and mosaic, book arts and paintings. While the art is often quite high skilled, the message is simple. Art belongs to each of us, and making our own images helps the world make sense.

    Expressive Arts Institute Second Floor Premiere Time is Love '15 an International touring Video Show curated by Kisito Assangi

    TIME is Love Screening is a roving international video art program on the theme of love in hard times.Since 2008 the project has been exploring forms of artistic expression rising from society and the new media's use of technology. 
    The selected artists deliver us without concession a range of complexities and passions generated by human relationships. Each of the artists leads an interdisciplinary practice bringing a questioning and a criticism on a system of relation to others which appears to us as being dying.
    Videos deal with prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalization, memory and spirituality. Love as universal feeling extricates itself here from traditional clichés and from a timeless idealism...
