Vanity begins with the Vanity Art Show opening, an exhibition in the art gallery at Merseles Studios curated by Lucy Rovetto, Visual Arts Coordinator, JCTC. The Vanity shows features 20 artists working in several different mediums. ““Everything about our lives now seems on display in some form of media,” said Rovetto. “There’s no longer much difference between our private self and public persona. Are we losing ourselves in what only looks like reality? Vanity in the truest sense of the word is all about the image, so maybe it make sense that this theme inspired visual artists, regardless of their medium.”
Vanity’s Art Show/Gallery Opening at Merseles Studios features the exhibition and artist reception, performances, video & multimedia projections and previews of upcoming Vanity events.
