CALL AND RESPONSE: A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE
June 21, 2019 – September 1, 2019
Call and Response: A Matter of Perspective is the seventh annual collaboration between the Fitchburg Art Museum and ArtsWorcester. This exhibition will feature ten works from FAM’s permanent collection and a single work by each of the ten selected ArtsWorcester members. This year’s selection features artwork by ArtsWorcester members: Eugenie Lewalski Berg, Eli Brown, Christine Croteau, Madge Evers, Nathan Fiske, Angela Kelly, Haley Marchant, Kat O’Connor, Amanda Kidd Schall, and John Wesley Small.
Through this collaboration, ArtsWorcester members were invited to respond to this year’s theme: perspective. Determined by one’s point of reference, perspective can express an internal logic or a physical viewpoint. It can be distorted and made malleable by our personal and collective experiences, memory, and ways of thinking. A Matter of Perspective includes artworks that creatively engage the theme through technique and subject matter.
