Humans are social creatures, capable of working together and sharing ideas and inspiration, even when working toward different ends. Artists Ryan Johnson, Johannes VanDerBeek and Sara VanDerBeek are friends, studio mates and (in two instances) siblings. Each has their own interests and purposes for making art, but their proximity (both physical and emotional) results in concepts migrating from one person to another and then popping up in each others' work, albeit sometimes in an altered form. Their joint exhibition High, Low & In Between is evidence of the viral nature of collaboration, even when artists are not expressly working together. High, Low & In Between opens with a free public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at White Flag Projects (4568 Manchester Avenue; 314-531-3442 or www.whiteflagprojects.org). The work remains up through Saturday, August 24, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 22. Continues through Aug. 24, 2013
