A Juried Exhibit by the Politits Art Coalition

Poitits: Art Coalition is proud to announce that 40 artists have been selected for our second annual exhibition focused on promoting artwork by those whom have been historically underrepresented throughout the arts. This year, we had international applicants!  Submissions were made by female-identifying, POC, queer community, trans individuals and any other two-spirited folks that celebrates diversity in practice and strength in vision. Politits will be curating a visually diverse , yet cohesive, show that will offer a wide range of materiality and topic; free from censorship to artists from Rochester and beyond.

The exhibition will be on display at The Yards Collective Art Space from Friday 3/2/18 - Friday 3/16/18. Open gallery hours for viewing will be during The Yards supported market Saturdays, 10-2pm. Other viewing times are available by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

February 22nd-24th, 2018

Please join us for a celebration of collage. In the pursuit to share and grow the appreciation of collage, The Rochester Collage Society will be hosting Unnatural Symmetry. Hung on the walls of The Yards Collective Art Space will be over 40 collage artists from around the globe.

Unnatural Symmetry is an exploration of the aspects of life which do not quite sit soundly when we take the time to investigate them deeper. The concept of Unnatural Symmetry is brought to light through understandings and correspondences of balances and imbalances of the world, life, and perceptions. These are found in forms such as unnatural and natural, real and imaginary, predator and prey, life and death, and many more.
