VERO BEACH — “am i? i am,” a collection of new work by artist, Pamela Pike Gordinier from Stonington, Ct and more recently Vero Beach, will be exhibited at the Intrepid Art Gallery from Jan. 18 through Feb. 18. An opening reception will be on Thursday Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. and closing ceremonies will be at the beach walkway across the gallery on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 5pm.
The exhibition includes oils, poured inks, and video art which explores navigating thru life and making our mark. In the art video, “am i? i am”, Pam has collaborated with dancer, L’Ana Burton, composer, Glenn Hardy and poet, Lana Orphanides from Ct. A portion of the video was filmed at daybreak in Vero Beach in March of 2011.
Ultimately, this work considers how we navigate through life and challenges the viewer to ask, how have I come this way? “Has my life mattered?”
