MANO Fine Art invites you to the Opening Reception for the 2013 edition of “Made in the U.S.A”., an annual group exhibition that examines shifting boundaries between the origins of creativity and ingenuity and how they are influenced by contemporary American culture.
This year sixteen artist with ties to South Florida have been invited to collectively create an interpretive, visual perspective for viewers to reflect on what it means to be â€œmadeâ€ in the U.S.A. a question that resonates even more poignantly in todayâ€™s environment.The message and the medium presented are as fluid and varied as the artists. The work presents an exciting and challenging gamut of artistic mastery ranging from classic Americana as interpreted by Jane Harrisâ€™ oil on canvas â€œ638â€; Carlos Stincerâ€™s silk screen perfections â€œMade in Chinaâ€; Ed Berounskyâ€™s aluminum sculptureâ€Blue Womanâ€; MANOâ€™s sculptural hybrid of re purposed objects, â€œPut A Lid On Itâ€; and the project launch of â€œWar Mammasâ€ a powerful video installation by Patricia Figueroa Sowers.
The exhibition will open on Saturday, September 21st, 7-10 pm in conjunction with the Bird Road Art and will also feature a special performance by Invention Theater & Production Company â€”The Companyâ€™s two troupesâ€”Negative Four Months and Always Cherish Cheeseâ€”will present a small showcase of short-form improve throughout the night.
