Appearing in the Art Center’s Main Gallery, “Interior Monologues” is a multi-media show, incorporating painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, video, and site-specific installation. The exhibition presents work by artists who depict various interior spaces and the real, imagined, or implied narratives connected to these places. Several of the artists depict actual places while others invent new places based on their experience or imagination. Many of the works suggest hidden histories or embedded memories and emotions. Some artists include people or fictional characters in their work, while others show interiors devoid of people. Whether public or private, all of these interior settings are activated by the presence—or absence—of humans. Participating artists are: Matt Bollinger, Erin Diebboll, Susan Leopold, Dana Levy, Summer McCorkle, Anne Muntges, Casey Ruble, and Paul Wackers.
