Clare Gallery Exhibit: “Leave No Trace”

January 11 @ 8:00 am March 15 @ 5:00 pm

Clare Gallery’s first 2024 exhibition is Leave No Trace by Sariah Park. Park is an inter-disciplinary artist of European and Indigenous descent, and is an enrolled member of the Chiricahua Apache Nation. Issues of identity, culture, and the act of making in relation to the future of our climate are examined in her work. During her process, she asks important questions, such as: 

Ghost Dancer by Sariah Park
  • How does our identity inform what and how we make? 
  • How, what, and why do we consume? 
  • What are the effects of overconsumption on the environment? 
  • Is there beauty and transformation through pain, decay and loss? 

This exhibition features work that repurposes textile stock, up-cycling, and new forms of printing with textile waste. Park states, “This work shows the transformation of material made immaterial, craft as a form of ceremony, and the transfer of energy and spirit into a living process, striving to become in balance with the natural world.”

The Gallery is hosting a closing reception on Thursday, March 14, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm, during which the public will be invited to view the work and join the artist.
