“Home” On View in Gallery Two Dates: Oct. 8 – Nov. 19, 2017

What does ‘Home’ mean to you? Our home interiors create our environment and state of mind. It is often the place we associate with our identity. Rockland Center for the Arts invites artists to submit artwork and videos conveying ‘home’. How does your interior home space affect your emotional and mental outlook on life? How is your living space affected by the outside environment or does the home environment affect you in the outside world? Is it a sanctuary, a creative space, a place of conflict, new beginnings, endings, or memories? What does ‘home’ evoke for you?
The prefabricated house has been, and continues to be, not only a reflection on the house as a replicable object of design but also as a critical agent in the discourse of sustainability, and architectural invention. It is a source of societal class and social structure, family communication, or the deterioration of our very core of existence. Open to all forms of 2D and 3D art for the wall. Photography, fiber, painting, drawing, wood, glass, ceramic. Also open to videos or documentaries for our media spaces.
