Redux Contemporary Art Center will host a two-person exhibition featuring local artist Celeste Caldwell and Washington, D.C., artist Mills Brown. The exhibition, titled Welcome, will run Feb. 12-March 27.
Caldwell and Brown created art for Welcome rooted in domestic spaces, featuring women and Southern traditions. “The artists invite viewers into the intimate moments contained in each work, and in turn we ask what it means to feel fully welcomed in a space,” Redux executive director Cara Leepson said in a press release.
Using fiber art and paint, Caldwell depicts modern femininity inside and out of the home in Welcome. For her part, Brown reinvented memories from the places she’s called home through acrylic paint, oil pens and collaged photos. Both artists analyze the concept of the home through the exhibition.
Welcome will kick off Feb. 12 with an opening reception at 5 p.m.
