Extra Celestial | Curated by Tom di Maria

December 11, 2015 – January 16, 2016

Creative Growth Art Center to pleased to partner with Crosstown Arts to present the exhibition Extra Celestial. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Crosstown Arts is a contemporary arts organization dedicated to further cultivating the creative community by providing resources and programs integrating varying components of exhibition, performance, production, education, and retail.

In Extra Celestial, Creative Growth artists Luis Aguilera, David Albertsen, Terri Bowden, Susan Janow, Allan Lofberg, Dan Miller, Donald Mitchell, William Scott, Ruth Stafford, William Tyler, Merritt Wallace and Ed Walter explore concepts of inner and outer space.

This ethereal grouping of works on paper presents an otherworldly and highly personal view of inner explorations and celestial journeys. Often abstract, always visionary, these colorful and dynamic paintings and drawings serve as maps to a galaxy of dreams and to compelling utopian realities.

An important component of Extra Celestial is the gallery premiere of “Starquarius”, the new space exploration video from the Creative Growth Video Production Workshop that reflects and re-considers the iconic sci-fi films of our lives.
