The afternoon will feature work from local artist, Celeste Chen, and will provide artists and enthusiasts an opportunity to casually gather, discuss and appreciate local art.
Chen is a Boston-born, District resident and current studio art and neurobiology student at Georgetown University. She focuses on depicting moments of transition and inner turmoil with regard to the formation of character. For her, these temporal spaces of identity shifts are best translated into an image-based lexicon of color rather than a vernacular constricted by synthetic rules of arbitrary and forced agreement.
Chen’s most recent work, which includes drawings and paintings, investigates the interaction between environment and self in the deconstruction and recreation of self-image.
