Studios on the Park exhibiting ‘Migrations’ show 

General view Studios on the Park

–Studios on the Park is exhibiting a new show with a, “serious social conscience” called “Migrations.” Anne Laddon, Artistic Director of Studios on the Park, was reading a feature in the New York Times last fall detailing the human cost of the immigrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East. She was so moved that she said she wanted to find a way for artists to express their emotions on the subject of migration through a juried show shared with the public.

She and juror and curator Eve Provost Chartrand put together a, “dramatic artistic expression of both human suffering and the eternal hope that inspires people to leave their homes in search of a better life for themselves and their families.”

"Birds of Passage," by Julie Frankel.

Some of the work in Migrations is graphic and, “difficult to experience.”

“This exhibit pays homage to the human spirit,” said Laddon. “It inspires optimism even through the sadness.”

In jurying this exhibition, Chartrand said she looked for personal vision and creative approach as well as excellence in execution as she selected one Best in Show and four Awards of Excellence.

“Central Coast artists really rose to the occasion,” said Chartrand. “The art covers so many moods in so many mediums. It was a privilege to jury this exceptional work.”

Featured artists include Jim apRoberts, Deprise Brescia, Jeanne Dunn, Danielle Durchslag, WB Eckert, Julie Frankel, Peg Grady, Jordan Hockett, Diana Licon, Richard Mortensen, Jan Neuser, David Settino Scott, Robert Simola, Josh Talbott and Olli Waldhauer.

Migrations opened on January 2 and will run through Jan. 31. It is located in the Atrium of Studios on the Park at 1130 Pine Street in Paso Robles. For more information, go to http://www.studiosonthepark.org.
