Beau Geste

March 22 – April 25, 2012

Waving goodbye, giving a thumbs up, blowing a kiss–all are simple gestures that are widely understood social cues. Beau Geste, or “beautiful gestures”, looks at the way people communicate in the absence of language, highlighting the graceful subtleties in everyday expressions.

Whether an unconscious action or a deliberate pose, the varied ways in which people move through their routines can be like a choreography of sorts. Character can be defined and a mood conveyed through a look, a slight arch of the brow, or even a sideways glance. Join us as we focus on the figurative manifestations of the studio, including artwork by William Scott, George Wilson, John Martin, Ron Veasey, Kim Clark, Terri Bowden and many more.
