Marsha Balian: Scenic Route
January 13 - February 26
Transmission Gallery is pleased to present Marsha Balian: Scenic Route in our small space gallery.
Marsha Balian: We are living in such challenging times. Our mobility is restricted. Our opportunities for connection with others, compromised. Our ability to travel safely, limited. We’ve had to hunker down several times over the last year and a half and there is worry about the possibility of another surge this winter.
All of that has led me to think about the role of art, and the experience of art-making. Art won’t necessarily make up for the many losses we have either suffered ourselves, or the need to bear witness to the suffering of others.
But art can be an escape of sorts. A visual passage to another place, to something better, something engaging, and perhaps scenic. If art can be a journey, then I’d choose to take the scenic route. I invite you to take that with me…..
