Carbondale Clay Center Presents, In the Year 2525, a collaborative exhibition by Annette and Andrew Roberts-Gray
Carbondale Clay Center will be hosting a reception for our January exhibition, In the Year 2525, featuring collaborative works from artists Annette and Andrew Roberts-Gray. The exhibition will run from January 4th through the 25th, with Reception on January 11th from 6-8pm.
This collaborative exhibition uses the 1968 pop song "In the year 2525" by Zager and Evans, as theme for presented works. The narrative elements of the song are used as suggestions for visual tone, imagery, and context for paintings, sculpture, and mixed media work. Viewers are encouraged to embrace dystopia: "Everything you think, do, and say is in the pill you took today, woh oh woh!"
Annette and Andrew Roberts-Gray have been practicing artists for over 30 years, and have been full time residents of the Roaring Fork Valley since the early 90’s. Both have taught at the Anderson Ranch is Snowmass, CO, and have extensively exhibited their work throughout the valley and beyond. Andrew is the 2018/19 recipient of the Aspen Art Museum Inaugural Fellowship and is currently preparing for an exhibition and travel in China, as well as several regional shows.
In the Year 2525 is the second collaborative exhibition for the artist couple, in as many years, with a combination of physical and conceptual collaborations. Finding an excitement of unexpected discoveries from the collaborative process, both Annette and Andrew have enjoyed collaborating more than either expected. “Things came out differently than in our individual practices, subtle challenges required navigating and strategizing, which was a really great experience”, says Andrew.
