Interior Monologues is a multi-media show incorporating painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, video, and site-specific installation. “All of the artists in this exhibition are exploring the real, imagined, or implied narratives connected to interior spaces, and how they suggest hidden histories or embedded memories and emotions,” said Sarah Walko, the Art Center’s director of education & community engagement. “These themes are both intimate and expansive, allowing the work on display to resonate with nearly everyone who has visited the exhibition. I’m so pleased the exhibiting artists will assemble to discuss this work one last time before the show closes.”

All winter/spring exhibitions will be on display through June 16. Following their completion, the Art Center’s Main Gallery and Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg Gallery will close for renovations and will reopen in fall 2019.
