Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?
This exhibit began with imaginative titles concealed inside fortune cookies. Each artist created a work inspired by the title they randomly received, and then lyrics were created inspired by the images, and songs were composed based around the lyrics. The challenge was the brainchild of Bondo Wyszpolski - arts writer for Easy Reader and Peninsula Magazine. “I wanted to see various local artists try their hand at something different, something they might not ordinarily do, and the title each artist received would, I hoped, push them along in that direction. A piece might be 'successful' if somebody seeing it said: 'Oh! I didn't know you did work like this' - referring to subject matter or style. I’m reminded of a quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard: 'Art lives by transgressing boundaries, by going beyond what everyone has agreed to see and think'."
