Curated by Lisa Edwards
Art Demand 5.1 features work by emerging local artist Kendra Schellenberg. Featuring images of the female form drawn from glossy magazines, then reinterpreted and transformed using natural elements like wood and thorns, the works in this exhibition address broad themes of body and identity, particularly as they relate to notions of femininity and beauty. The Art on Demand exhibition program is a part of Emerge @ The Reach, a creative incubator that offers exciting professional development activities to aspiring curators and artists between the ages of 18-35.
