JEFF MICKEY AND JEAN FLINT EXHIBIT ON DISPLAY THROUGH OCTOBER 31ST
As working artists, who are married, we share many parts of each others lives. At times this overlap is productive and supportive, at times the egos of two artists living in the same space is a challenging endeavor. In both cases, the environment we live in is a strong and dynamic place in which to make art.
Visually our work is very different, that at first seems unrelated. But closer inspection reveals a quiet dialog that comes from shared experiences and responsibilities. Both bodies of work exhibited together speak to the similarities and differences of people who choose to share each others lives. In this exhibition we hope to find understanding about our own personal connections and hope that the viewer can find connections and understanding with us, either sympathetically or empathetically.
Friday, Oct. 3rd, 5-8 p.m. as part of the Downtown Hammond Art Walk.
Lunch Lecture with the Artist:
Thursday, Oct. 9th, 12-1 p.m. as part of our Lunch Lecture Series.
