Jan 11 – March 1
Absurd Imaginaries is a new exhibition at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts featuring works by Julie Liger-Belair and Jessica Calderwood. Absurd Imaginariesis on display from January 11 to March 1, 2019. The opening reception will be held on January 11 from 5:30 to 7:30PM, and will feature an appearance by Jessica Calderwood herself, along with music from Emilee Petersmark of The Crane Wives!
Figurative artists Julie Liger-Belair and Jessica Calderwood draw upon surrealist motifs and folklore in playful yet subversive explorations of gender, identity, and fantasy. While distinct in their mediums and aesthetics, the two artists share more than a few similarities in their approaches. Both artists play with simultaneously revealing and concealing the female figure, a flirtatious dance between invitation and denial.
