Reception: Friday, June 1, 7:30 pm, City Center Art Lounge, 300 Page Street, SF
David Prowler, President of CEâ€™s Board of Directors, curated this new exhibition to connect Creativity Explored and the San Francisco Zen Center. Both institutions offer unique ways to see and experience the world beyond the â€œin your faceâ€ workaday one.
The artwork was chosen to give a glimpse of a transcendent realityâ€”one that is embodied in the spirit and legacy of both institutions. The included artworks represent the beginnings of a dialog about transcendence that Prowler hopes will resonate into the future.
TRANSCENDENT features artwork by Samedi Djeimguero, Ricardo Estella, John Patrick McKenzie, Lance Rivers, Kevin Roach, Yukari Sakura, Hung Kei Shiu, Ana Maria Vidalon, Richard Wright, and Alexander Yeap.
Creativity Explored exists to provide people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to express themselves through the creation of art. Additionally, we provide studio artists the opportunity to earn income from the sale of their artwork and to pursue a livelihood as a visual artist to the fullest extent possible.
A key focus of Creativity Exploredâ€™s services is to support those individuals with developmental disabilities who wish to become self-employed artists in creating and operating fully viable and profitable businesses. This is a link to the announcement on the Creativity Explored website.
