Community Arts @ Paramount Gallery
Chris Erchick, Nathan Vince, and Tim Whitehead curated by Narine Kchikian
I finally made it out to Community Arts. I have been meaning to go for some time now and when it opened I couldn't quite picture where a gallery could be in a bank in ferndale...but now it all makes sense...phew, glad that is cleared up :) The space is unexpected but it is really wonderful to see local contemporary artwork in a bank that is not just decorative giclees by unknown catalog artists that decorators normally use in those situations. Instead the artwork is challenging for the viewer and not as easy to grasp as a "happy landscape poster" for the average bank customer to view. Things like this make a difference in a community, so cheers to Narine for putting this project together. Hmm...maybe I will have to change banks....
