Fresh A.I.R. Gallery presents

Mending Broken Pieces
a dual exhibition by artists
Em Gan and Cassandra Peters

May 24 – June 30, 2017

 

Fresh A.I.R. Gallery presents Mending Broken Pieces, a dual exhibition by artists Em Gan and Cassandra Peters. Both artists explore personal fracturing and disconnection in their work, as well as the idea that creativity can make one whole again.

 

Em Gan is a painter who resides in Williamsburg, Virginia. Originally from Chengdu, China, she started painting in earnest upon her transition to life in the U.S., a period she found to be traumatizing and incredibly isolating. Through artwork, Em examines these feelings of disconnection in creative, sometimes playful ways, which has helped facilitate her recovery.

 

Cassandra Peters is a Delaware County (43074), Ohio painter. An artist for most of her life, Cassandra continued to paint after her diagnosis with Bipolar Disorder. Employing a style that resembles that of the early 20th century Cubists, her paintings often consist of broken pieces, sharp edges, and words that combine to form a pictorial whole. Cassandra writes: "I find it incredible how something so broken and ugly can become so beautiful."
