SPRING 2018 GALLERY HOUSE PROGRAM

  KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU   The Gallery House Fellows of Spring 2018 are curating an exhibition Knowing Me Knowing You that explores the identities, perspectives, and personal experiences of young creators. It is an intimate look at narrative-based artwork complemented by journal-like entries, sketches, progress logs, and photographs. Some artists are presenting singular works, and others are showing a collection of finished pieces surrounded by the evidence of their thoughts and creative processes, as manipulated by the world around them. All artists being displayed, however, are under thirty years old and have their entire careers ahead of them. Join us for a glimpse of the current generation. The exhibition will embrace a wide variety of media, including paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, and mixed media. Original works will be raffled off and auctioned to benefit the Children’s Art Guild ( https://www.childrensartsguild.org ), a New York City based organization determined to help children transcend expectations and disadvantages in order to explore and develop their creativity and artistic drives through education.  Take a peek at the motives of painters, photographers, writers, poets, filmmakers, draftsmen and women, and all other people of creative ambition. Discover those who escape reality for an alternative motive and those who curiously indulge with all its grandeur. Judge those as romantics and cynics, but then dissect the intention within their muse. Some are childlike spirits, and others may appear to the contrary. Explore all the unique complications of individual identity - and think to yourself; What are the subtleties of your character? What makes you tick? What angers you, excites you, aggravates, and then quickly drains you? What has facilitated your creative expression, and what has hindered your growth? Compare that to the culmination of artwork on our wall, then judge as you may... for everyone has a unique story to tell.

  Yejin Ha  is from Chang-won, South Korea. She is a second-year photography major at Pratt Institute. She is interested in conceptual arts as she thinks that art is a medium to convey thoughts and concepts that she has. Most of her works are based on her identity such as emotion and background.   Ji Min Hwang  is from Seoul, South Korea. She is a fourth-year illustration major at Pratt Institute. She believes that emotion, hardship and memories are the essential elements of life. Her work consistently revisits past memories to recreate emotion that evoke empathy. She wishes to share her theory with the audience through art—the importance of the coexistence of happiness and sadness.   Samuel DiBiase,  from Minersville, PA, is a visual artist studying his B.F.A. at Pratt Institute. Influenced by classic illustration and nineteenth century French and American art, he strives for relatable and immersive senses of narrative. He primarily works in dry-based medium that then translates into oil paint for finished pieces. His aspirations lie in the education system, while focusing on displaying work as an independent artist.
