Artist's Statement:

The BAA Members’ Exhibition is CONSTRUCTION/DESTRUCTION.


Construction surrounds us at Brickbottom and throughout the city. There is constant noise and disruption. This could be a distraction or an inspiration! There is also the formal construction of a composition, the building of a sculpture, the assembling of an installation. The destruction could be about the loss of city landmarks or global warming and its effect on our planet. All ideas and media are welcome.

This exhibit was intended to be on display April 16 - May 16, 2020, but could not be opened to the public because of Covid-19. 

Instead, you can now view it in Brickbottom's Virtual Gallery, at https://brickbottom.org/login/constructiondeconstruction .
