Tuesday, May 26: Studio Visit: “The Collective, The Connected, and The In-Between"
Join Janeann Dill for a presentation entitled, Studio Visit: “The Collective, The Connected, and The In-Between”
"I invite you to join me in a virtual studio visit in Somerville! I want to speak with you about my art and the visual language of abstraction. I have never been interested in abstraction that (re)presents a mood or is a kind of expression. I am interested in the action of thought, (be)coming to being, and time as timing. My interests are conceptual, not referential.
Together we will look at an unfinished painting that is 6’ x 12.5’ painted with acrylic on canvas. Please join me as we break apart the painting into a digital puzzle whose parts can be collected by suggested donation. Collecting the puzzle parts of this painting is not the end all, however! When this “in-between” moment becomes a memory of isolation due to the pandemic, our personal history will be marked by an exhibition of these two works of art: (1) The painting and (2) the digital puzzle (parts collected during the HOME ALONE Studio Visit; the extension of this event into an exhibition will be(re)connected into a (re)newed collective!"

The Somerville Arts Council is launching the Home Alone Art Series (HAAS), a series of art-related performances live-streamed through Facebook. The performances will represent a variety of genres, including: Music, Visual Arts, Performance, Writing, Theater, Dance and Multidisciplinary art forms.
The goal of the HAAS is to hire and pay Somerville artists (both residents and those who have a studio in the city) who are experiencing financial difficulties due to COVID-19. SAC's events strive to bring people together; however given current circumstances, we need to respect social distancing measures to protect the well-being of our community. So HAAS brings people together virtually!
We are accepting on a rolling basis, please share, we want to pay you!
