Neighborhood Arts Collective

Fundraiser event December 14 6-9pm

Works on view December 9-14 hours TBD

More about the organization:

We create art that is based on the lives of our neighbors. We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to this, but we do follow a general process. First, we interview a subject “neighbor”, possibly multiple times, and try to get an accurate sense of what their life is like. We then sit down as a team and discuss the ideas and themes that stand out to us from those interviews. Each artist in the collective spends time developing their own ideas regarding what their contribution will be, and we discuss what media will best portray that neighbor and their life. Then we spend time (weeks, and possibly months) creating art, often with the subject neighbor’s input based on the ideas that have come out of this process of getting to know them better. What you see/read/hear is the product of that process of getting to know one of our neighbors.

This project came together out of a desire to know more about one another. To knock on the door of the people surrounding us and make tangible connections again. Neighborhood Arts Collective was created out of need, something we felt was necessary and important in a nation torn apart by differences and fear. What’s missing? Empathy.

Erased memories, like dead erasers, still speak. You can try to erase moments in time but marks remain –  the flecks of rubber on paper, the stains on an eraser.

Marela Zacarias Studios  Working with a labor-intensive process that merges sculpture with painting, Marela Zacarias fabricates forms out of wire screening attached to wooden supports or found objects to which she applies layers of plaster to create undulating forms. Through sanding, polishing, and painting, she creates sculptures with the quality of fabric, filled with movement and expressive quality. She then paints the sculptures with original patterns and geometric abstract shapes that are inspired by her research.  Her work is characterized by an interest in site specificity, socially committed history and current events. Open to the public during Art Attack.
