Parting Is Such Sorrow Until We Meet Again Tomorrow
Co-curated by Kathleen Henderson

Every day one hundred artists stream into the Creative Growth studio and take part in a ritual that is performed the world over: they greet each other. They say hello. It’s a simple act, barely noticeable, but one whose profundity is often most noticeable by its absence. In tandem with its bookend goodbye, hello happens again and again, forming a thread of continuity through the day as artists begin to make prints, rugs, films, ceramics, drawings, paintings, and sculptures.

Creative Growth artist Laura Jo Pierce provides the inspiration for Parting Is Such Sorrow Until We Meet Again Tomorrow, a title lifted directly from her signature text-based paintings. 

Featuring work by John Martin, George Wilson, Ying Gee Zhou, Rickie Algarva and other emerging artists, this show gives pause to the humdrum salutation that caps our every encounter.

POINT-OF-VIEW | Kim Clark: Upstairs in our Viewing Room gallery, Kim Clark commemorates celebrities who have passed away through her sculptural textile “portraits.”
