Julia Caston, Emotional Slut, mixed media on paper, 2018; Oami Powers, Judith, graphite on paper, 2018.

This dual body of work explores the joy of drawing and reflects Oami and Julia’s friendship, which developed when they were both Regional Emerging Artists in Residence at Artspace in the spring of 2018. While the two artists’ work is aesthetically different, both artists are concerned with ideas of selfhood, connections between people, and what it means to be a working artist.

Site-Specific Installation:
Tedd Anderson

Davie St Entrance

Tedd Anderson’s mural features the iconic “dry space” characters for which the artist is known set in a landscape filled with swirling, topographic lines, jagged edges, and meditative objects and shapes. A banner with a poem scrawled on its surface runs through the piece, bringing the imagery into a cohesive whole.
