« Artist's Talk at Kellar Mahaney | Main | City Squared Opening April 1st »

City Squared in the Press

There are a few days left to catch my City Squared exhibit at the Kellar Mahaney Gallery. It's up until this Wednesday. Nuvo gave it four stars in it's review:
I was told that the photos in Andy Chen's latest series, City Squared, were taken during breaks from his recent downtown "desk job" – he'd walk the Canal to escape the florescent lights and stretch his legs from tight cubicle quarters.

It’s a situation that many of us find ourselves in. Chen used these walks to explore the interplay between the art that we love and the life that we live. Tellingly, Chen's exploration takes shape in themes involving movement, opportunity and at times, dead ends: Paths, walls, doors and windows are the subjects of his journeys.

And today, the Indianapolis Star profiled me for the Stutz Artists Open house:
"I think there are some really fabulous art communities around town. Where we need more momentum is in patronage," said Chen.

"It's still developing, this habit of including art in your everyday life. People aren't quite sure where that fits in yet. If people find art in a way that changes how they see their day, then it will be shared with the people in their lives.

"So as artists, we have to be aware of that responsibility, to create work and to expose the work in a way that people can be delighted."

Here's the Star article.

The Stutz Artists Open House is April 29th and 30th. It's one of the best art events in Indianapolis. I'm proud to be part of it and it will be well worth your time to attend. Come see me at Studio B240.
