Union Hill Arts Building
Union City, NJ,
USA United States of America
American Sentences is an exhibition of contemporary art in a variety of
mediums. Site specific works, installations, multimedia, along with more
traditional work will occupy about 5,000 square feet of the former R.H.
Simon Silk Mill. In the last decade, the building, and its century old
walls, have become a haven for artists. This invitational exhibition,
AMERICAN SENTENCES, continues the transformation of this unique location
from a commercial space to a truly alternative art house. The previous
exhibitions, Inside The Mill, and Image/Mileage began to expose the
buildings potential. Resident, as well as regional artists have taken
advantage of the spacious and often inspiring complex. The Union Hill Arts
Building continues to encourage and challenge artists. These efforts are
made visible in the current exhibition.
More inclusive then exclusive, American Sentences joins disciplines,
techniques, and visions. Themes are personal and unique. Experimental and
aggressive, these artists only connection may be their dedication to
creating an art experience. Disparate and innovative, the selected works
challenge viewers to re-think visual language. The exhibit, like a visual
poem, informs and moves the viewer into the artistís space and mind.
