Tempe Public Library focuses on the details
November 28, 2012 by Mark
The ‘Something in the Details’ Exhibition displays how artisans can choose simple everyday objects and scenes to depict beauty and tell the objects’ stories. Most of the artisans have created their subject matter in exact detail. This is a fascinating exhibition and guests are sure to enjoy examining the thought behind the detail.
The majority of the objects being depicted can be found in the everyday world and are presented using a life-like, trompe-l’oeil style. Some use computers and surface mapping to mathematically create an abstracted image from the arizona desert. The Connections Café, located in Tempe Public Library, gives local artists the opportunity to express, experiment, and realize new media and themes, both through their own work and that of other artisans. This exhibition displays the crossroads that the various artists have reached and the unexpected and interesting fields of choice, while still sharing a common, yet unique bond. This exhibition provides guests with the opportunity to view many artists work and compare the various media and styles, while enjoying everyday object portrayed through another person’s eyes.
Poster printing, brochure printing, and flyer printing may have been used to advertise and promote this exhibition to the public. The Something in the Details Exhibition is free of charge to attend and runs up until this Sunday, December 2 during regular library hours at the Connections Café Gallery inside the Tempe Public Library, located at 3500 S. Rural Road in Tempe, Arizona. To check hours, please visit the Tempe Library website or call the branch at 480-350-5500.
