EX.EX.: Excerpt Exhibition

The sixth annual EX.EX.: Excerpt Exhibition will be presented at the La Tienda Exhibit Space in Eldorado during the month of October, 2011. The invitational will present 35 local artists, who individually exemplify un-common interests, sensibilities, and notions about ART, and its practice. Some are emerging in their homes & are new to exhibitions; some are students; some are everyday artists...doing their things; some are internationally renowned; all are pushed, pulled, and motivated by a "feeling"--a longing--which never goes, away! "They rock"...in their own world! For these reasons, each has been invited to select & show two pieces in EX.EX. VI! The criterion is established by artist/professor, Dean Howell...who writes:

Artistic Existence

There's an artistic soul, an artistic process, and an artistic object. Inherent to them all, is artistic existence. The EX.EX. concept is about honoring the fact that at the end of the day-everyday-there are those who find themselves pursuing this existence, sometimes unknowingly...and there are those who simply embody it-whether they intend to or not...whether they're judged good at it or not. EX.EX. VI: Excerpt Exhibition presents artists, who are... to the side, underneath, and over the top of normal levels of soul, process, and objectified existence. We need to study them hard.
