Artists show “restraint” in new exhibition by azhttp

TEMPE, Ariz. – An exhibition exploring a number of themes and media

surrounding artists’ personal interpretations of “Containment” will be on

display from Sept. 6 to Nov. 2 in the Lower Level Library, 3500 S.

Rural Road.

The exhibition features work by artists Sandra Luehrsen of Tempe; Denise

Currier of Mesa; Leandro Soto, Kate Timmerman and Denise Yaghmourian, all of

Phoenix; and Hyun Jee Suh of Chandler.

“A container or vessel can take almost any shape and function that a person

can imagine,” Exhibition Coordinator Michelle Dock said.

‘Containers can be as inexpressive as a cardboard box, zip-lock bag or

plastic cup. But in the hands of an artist, containers can be embellished

with meaning and value.”

Containers in this exhibition become intimate vessels for precious objects

and memories like a locket, jewelry box or scrapbook.

Containment also is reflected in two- and three-dimensional objects and

ideas such as confinement, restraint or protection.

For some artists, the theme refers to an object such a teapot, box or bowl.

Some of these objects are functional while others are more decorative. For

other artists, the theme refers to a communication of feelings and

expression of ideas.
