“Play with Perception” - An interactive art exhibit by Julie Robinson

310 ART Gallery
191 Lyman St, Studio #310 at Riverview Station North
River Arts District, Asheville, North Carolina
September 1, 2011 – October 6th, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 10 from 5 PM to 7 PM

“I wanted to create a show that would engage and involve the viewer in my paintings.
I’m always fascinated to hear how people respond to my work, especially because my art is abstract and completely open to interpretation. I notice how viewer comments often shift my perception and deepen my awareness of each painting.
It’s an interesting phenomenon to me how we are all so interconnected and always surprising to me to learn what is going on in someone else’s mind.
As a painter, I thought it would be interesting to actually incorporate a collective viewer response on panels that would become part of the exhibit and become a springboard for a new body of work.”
-Julie Robinson

For the duration of the show, viewers are invited to interact with the work and become active participants. Each painting in the exhibit has a partner commentary panel for viewers to write and draw their responses to the two questions posed: What is the first word that comes to mind? and What is the predominate feeling you are experiencing.

Along with the show will be avideo of the pieces of the art in the exhibit. This is posted on Julie’s website and on Facebook. Also concurrent with the show there will be a Facebook photo album and running commentary.
The exhibit is designed to play with your perceptions.
