ShapeShifter Gallery curates ‘The Telephone Show” at AVA Gallery. The opening will take place on March 2 during first Friday at AVA Gallery, 5-8pm. The show will remain up on display through March 30. Many of the artists will be present during the opening reception, and there will be a live musical performance inspired by the artwork exhibited by “Bear and the Willow.”
“The Telephone Game” is an art project/exhibition based on the childhood game, “Telephone.” The game
starts where one child whispers a sentence, into the ear of another child, and that child then whispers what
they heard to another child, and so on. As the sentence is passed along it changes. By the time the
sentence gets to the last child, it has become a completely different sentence.
“The Telephone Game” features artists from over 5 states, and one from Vancouver Canada. The project
started with a mixed media photo piece by Claire Bloomfield. After that, another artist took Claire’s piece
and made his own work influenced by that piece. From there, twenty-one more artists joined suit. The
artists had three weeks to create a piece as close or as loosely related to the original as they desired, as
long as the product was new and directly inspired by the one before it.
Featured artists include: Claire Bloomfield, Rylan Thompson, Heath Montgomery, Sue Fox, Damien
James, Carrie Pendergass, Christine Bespalec-Davis, Amanda Brazier, Andrew Nigh, Sarah Noreen, Sean
Whittaker, Lara Wolf, Maria Willison, Daniel Peterson, Eric Rivera, Mark Leamon, Sean Abrahams,
Caitlin Dickens, Myles Freeman, Matthew Dutton, Dax Van Aalten, Ashley Hamilton, and Taylor Turner.
