Home 2015: In Habit

May 1 – June 12, 2015

Make a habit of coming to our annual Home Show! Creative Growth invites you to explore anew your daily rituals and routines at this year’s exhibition entitled In Habit. As habits become repetitive and repetition becomes habit, we find ourselves in a cyclical relationship of recurring rituals and automatic replies. Whether it’s that cold bowl of cereal that starts your day or some scrupulous lawn mowing that provides Zen to your weekend, this group of artwork augments depictions of quotidian aspects of life, with a Creative Growth twist on the habitual actions we take for granted.

Featuring over 50 artists and artworks of all media, there’s bound to be a piece that caters to your everyday routine. The mundane “on, off” of a light switch is elevated through the artistic lens of Dan Miller; Christine Szeto translates incessant pop culture references into embroidered Mandarin on an arm chair; even the most rudimentary habit of all—knowing your ABCs—is infused with humor and personality through a collaborative print edition by 26 artists. Reward yourself for that deep Spring clean with bold and exciting one-of-a-kind quilts, custom furniture, ceramics, wood sculpture, painting and much more!
