SAY IT: Trace Nichols
January 11 – February 1, 2019
January 11, 5:00-7:00pm
Showcasing internationally exhibited Aspen visual artist and educator, Trace Nichols. Photographs speak a universal language in this interactive exhibition as Nichols delves into a medium that enables us to communicate our thoughts to others regardless of race, age, gender, lifestyle, or ethnicity.
SAY IT is an education-based, interactive photographic experience where the final visual statements are made by the visitors who participate with the art. These statements can be created from 10×10 still-life images that represent singular ideas. The images can be “read” literally or symbolically, and when several images are brought together, they create an expanded idea or statement, like words forming a sentence. Visitors will be able to construct their ideas by selecting and sequencing 2 to 5 images together on the gallery wall.
Using instagram, particpants will be encouraged to photograph and post their statements and tag the artist and the Art Base. Participants will also have a chance to win photographic prints of their SAY IT statement—drawing will be held at the end of the exhibition.
