An imaginative exhibition of installations that explore the concept of space.
Featured Creativity Explored artists include: Hanh Chau, Allura Fong, Christina Marie Fong, Anthony “Tony” Gomez, Claus Groeger, Jay Herndon, Makeya Kaiser, Kaocrew “Yah” Kakabutra, Marilyn Wong, and Beth Zmerzlikar.
SPACE is an immersive gallery experience consisting of sculpture-based work made from repurposed materials, paired with sound, video, and light components. More than a dozen Creativity Explored artists worked collaboratively to create a space of their own, working alongside the exhibition’s curators to create an “out-of-the frame,” conceptual environment.
Artist Anthony “Tony” Gomez, who has been with Creativity Explored nearly since its inception 30 years ago, is showing his piece “Different Colors,” a sculpture made of hand-sewn and painted paper. A year ago Gomez began the work as modest wall piece, but it has since grown to a large structure that measures more than six feet in height. This large-scale piece is displayed with a projection of a 16-millimeter scratch film through its mass, allowing light to bleed through and also giving the sculpture the appearance of movement.
Another artist, Makeya Kaiser, uses recycled cardboard and shredded paper to create abstract forms that resemble concrete blocks dotted with tiny, confetti-like speckles of color. Artist Marilyn Wong utilizes digital drawings as large-scale wall projections, while Kaocrew “Yah” Kakabutra pairs several of her white plaster and yarn sculptures with abstract animation film.
“This is a significant show for Creativity Explored, as it is the first exhibit that will focus solely on sculptural and conceptual work with aspects of digital media,” says Creativity Explored Visual Arts Instructor Grace Rosario Perkins, co-curator with Miranda Putman of SPACE. “The environment is intended to put you into the minds of the artists to see and feel their perspective,” she adds.
Don’t miss Creativity Explored’s most conceptual exhibition to date. It is a show that must be experienced as well as seen!

Assembled by prominent curators, Peaceable Kingdom is a juried show devoted to investigating our storied and rich relationship with the animal world. The exhibition explores the presence of animals in the visual arts, and how they appear as metaphors, totems, objects of fear, and sources of emotional attachment and affection.
The history of human and animal interaction is filled with tales of failed domestication, unusual friendships, and fearsome predators. Human fascination with the animal kingdom has run the gamut from emotional connection, to economic exploitation, and even scientific curiosity. Throughout all of these interactions, however, the sense of wonder we feel when we encounter animal life has been an enduring theme that has informed their continued and abiding presence in the visual arts.
This juried exhibition encourages artists to meditate on human/animal complex and diverse relationships, addressing such issues as antagonism, admiration, attachment, and even the politically charged issue of animal rights.
