Gallery XIV and Reflect-arts present a politic – a free exhibition that features artworks by contemporary American artists that express astute notions of politics while exploring and communicating a politic. Works selected for a politic will be based on the artist’s ability articulate and present thoughtful and compelling artworks that engage the viewing audience. The exhibition a politic will inspire an interactive space where a myriad of artworks become a vehicle and departure point for free and open exchange. Multiple points of view inspired by the artists will converge, enticing each viewer to participate in a political dialogue in their own way. Selected for the exhibition is Janusz Obst who has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2006.
a politic explores the dynamic between politics, art, creative persuasion, and media access/influence while seeking to uncover what is of central interest in our current political atmosphere. Complete with voting booths for ‘best in show’ and interactive stations, a politic will inspire our public freedom to consider and express a politic.
