The show Colored Blind-ness by artist Terry Marie consists of watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings, sculpture, and mixed media pieces that provoke questions about our perceptions of race, coloredness, and ethnicity and our own bias and misconceived beliefs. Its aim is for the audience to recognize their preconceptions about race and ethnicity in an emotional and meaningful way.
The use of color in the exhibit creates a visual test to examine and contemplate our notion of what we see, how we perceive it and make judgment before considering and experiencing its beauty, diversity, and humanity. Understanding our bias and prejudices enables us to look beyond color and see the beauty of our world. The show will take the audience down a path of discovering their preconceptions of color and invite them to embrace the beauty of diversity.
Pop-Up Gallery – Ian Quigley “The Original Medicine of Breath”
I started making art a few years ago based on my time in Peru and Costa Rica. I decided that burning wood and carving it is the way to go for me. I spent time with nativen people in Peru and Costa Rica, and across the USA learning from them and occasionally working and volunteering for them. I got a lot of inspiration from this. During this time I was exposed to new forms of culture, music, and community, as well as spiritual practices that are very ancient. I spent time in nature and meditating. I also got a stronger sense of the history of the USA and the results that it has brought the indigenous people.
So, some of the inspiration comes from Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Columbia, and the eastern USA.
I started making art about 5 years ago in New Mexico as a way to cope with being totally alone and lost.
