Getting Accquainted is opening tonight at Johalla Projects.

Info from their site...
We spend our lives surrounded by strangers. They’re sitting at bars, shopping in malls, and working in offices all around us. And while strangers are everywhere, we’re rarely given the chance to explore their circumstances. Conversely, the artists in Getting Acquainted have chosen to spend time with strangers. Anonymously working after the fact, they turn brief encounters into deep, careful records. Through collaborative video work, drawing, photography, and simply listening, these works celebrate the process and products of getting to know a stranger.

Featuring new work by:

In b Flat
Kristin Freeman
Shane Lavalette
Jason Polan
The Listening Project
Daniel Shea

Opening Reception: Friday, January 8, 7-10pm

Exhibition runs from January 8-24

Gallery hours are Saturday 1-5pm and by appointment during the week
