SOZO Gallery will host an opening reception for At the Root on Wednesday, April 13, from 6 – 8 PM.
Exhibition Dates: April 13 – May 28, 2022
SOZO Gallery presents At the Root, a group exhibition featuring the work of four contemporary artists: Jill Hotchkiss, Ana Maria Mariani, Michela Martello, and Kristen van Diggelen Sloan. At the Root will act as a visual investigation into spirituality and intimacy, with emphasis on nature, transcendence, and introspection.
The human condition is a wild amalgam of tokens – birth, growth, emotion, love, loss, harmony, conflict, spirituality, death – all acquired over the course of our lives. These are the things that connect us, and they come alive in various forms and through various modes:
Joy. Nature. Religion. Intimacy. Memory. Transcendance. Art.
At the root of it all, these are the things that define our humanity, our aspirations, our purpose. In this exhibition, Jill Hotchkiss, Ana Maria Mariani, Michela Martello, and Kristen van Diggelen Sloan will introduce us to some of the many intimacies that inform our wild and wonderful existence, and the universal roots that connect us.

Stimulus: Origins

The McColl Center for the Arts

Thursday, July 25, 2019
6:30-8:00 p.m., 721 N. Tryon St.
Charlotte, North Carolina 28202

How does an artist represent commonplace objects that possess personal meaning or symbolism? How can an object stand in for a person or memory? What are the origins of a still-life painting or a portrait?

Stimulus: Origins brings together artists creating with oil, acrylic, and photography to answer these questions and reveal clues to underlying themes found in their work. Conversation participants include summer artist-in-residence Chris Clamp, alumni artists-in-residence de’Angelo Dia (2010), painter and ceramicist Kristen van Diggelen Sloan, and painter John Seibels Walker. Visiting curator Marisa J Pascucci will guide the conversation.

We encourage you to bring an object that holds a powerful memory of a person or event to share with the artists and other participants.

The Stimulus series offers you deeper insight into the work and ideas of contemporary artists. These sessions aim to make connections between current McColl Center artists-in-residence, McColl Center alumni artists, and our constantly evolving local arts community.
