Through June 4, more than 50 artists explore their interpretations of the current state of democracy in a new exhibit, “Democracy,” at Overture Galleries in Madison.
In the new exhibit, the participating artists (local, regional and beyond) explore questions like, What is the history and definition of democracy? How does a democratic political system work? What is your vision of a healthy democracy?
Through Sunday, June 4, in Playhouse Gallery at Overture Galleries in Madison, guests can delve into these questions and more. A trio of other spring exhibits, which can be seen in Galleries I, II and III through Sunday, May 28, can be viewed in conjunction with “Democracy.”
In “Substance | Presence,” Hong Huo animates her bi-lingual writing process with ink drawings into a new storytelling device while Maeve Leslie depicts the lasting impacts of immigration and assimilation through handmade paper, printmaking and installation. Katharine Marchant’s drawings depict influential moments of her development in the firefighting culture in “Meditations on Hope.” Lastly, in “Looking Out | Looking Up,” the art of Cameron Anderson and Joyce Gust explore the mysterious and ethereal.
Overture Galleries are always free to visit and open to the public, and most artworks are for sale by regional artists. For more information, visit www.overture.org.
