Opening Reception:
Saturday, July 29, 6-9pm
Show Runs:
July 29 – August 27, 2017

EKPHRASTIC 2.0 is the second iteration of an experiment in collaborative multi-panel storytelling, facilitated by artist Megan Vossler. Over the course of five weeks, thirty-seven and counting participating artists will stop by SooVAC to draw onsite, as the drawings are completed they will be displayed on the walls in an exquisite corpse style narrative.

EKPHRASTIC 2.0 Contributing Artists: Kelly Abeln, Jaime Anderson, Kai Arnone, Alyssa Baguss, Taylor Baldry, Erik Benson, Michael Carina, Jennifer Davis, Jim Denomie, Andy DuCett, Julia Eshaghpour , Christi Furnas, Ruthann Godollei, Paige Guggemos, Christopher Harrison, Sherry Muyuan He, Sophia Heymans, Sophia Hill, Larassa Kabel, Kathranne Knight, Ann Lawton, David Lefkowitz, Erik Lervold, Niky Motekallum, Terrence Payne, Alex Petersen, Rachel Poli, Jenny Schmid, Caitlin Skaalrud, Alanna Stapleton, Andy Sturdevant, Tessa Sutton, Carolyn Swiszcz, Jade Townsend, Haruna Ujo, Megan Vossler, Chris Willcox and more!

The final week of the exhibition, writers James Cihlar, William Reichard, and more TBA will visit the completed drawing and create short narrative responses -- hence, the title EKPHRASTIC. (Ekphrasis = Greek term for the interpretation, description, or amplification of an existing artwork in one medium, by using another medium. For example, a drawing of a story, or a story about a drawing.)

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
