Immerge, an Art Exhibition at the Arcata Marsh.

We are pleased to announce the opening of “Immerge”, an art exhibition featuring 11 prominent artists from Humboldt County. Immerge will be on display at The Marsh Commons building at 101 south H street, from January 10th thru February 28th.

Join us January 10th from 6 until 9 pm at 101 south H street, at the corner of south G street, in Arcata, the Marsh Commons Community Building, during Arts Arcata for the opening reception. Meet some of the artists and enjoy some food and drink. We are featuring music by Dogbone, who will be playing from 7 until 9 pm.

"Immerge" is a presentation of the diverse talents of eleven women, ranging from several styles of painting to photography, collage, assemblage, and sculpture.

Featuring the art of Phyllis Barba, Regina Case, Noelle Cox, Natalie Craig, Kristen Hunter, Georgia Long, Jessie Groeschen, Lauren Miller, Rachel Schlueter, Patricia Sennott, and Linda Wise, this exhibition showcases some of the outstanding artists currently producing and showing work in Humboldt County.

The diversity of medium, style, and theme promises to be extremely pleasing and at a deeper glance we can experience the shifting momentum of bodies between worlds. From the archetypes of dreams and visions, or the subtle beauty of the textures and lenses that define our perception, we are immersed into the nexus of creative forces and emerge into reality.

Immerge is curated by Phyllis Barba of The Accident Gallery and Kevin Bourque of The Black Faun Gallery, and brought to you by Catherine DeSantis of The Marsh Commons Community Building.
