ABOUT THE SHOWS

OurSELF is a site-specific visual exhibition created by Scranton’s Pop Up Studio that seeks to create empathy and open dialogue about mental health through a thoughtful, interactive, art installation. The viewer is taken on a journey through a series of emotional and sensory experiences. Visitors are invited to move through each gallery and allow the installation to challenge their understanding of their environment and their ability to control it.

 

HerSELF: Through the Eyes of Amy Kiser

Amy Kiser found her voice as an artist and a survivor through a series of paintings and lithographic prints. Kiser’s work is reflective of powerful and traumatic life experiences which she conveyed through the use of color washes and line work that create overlapping layers onto her subject matter. The result is often haunting. These emotional depictions, most often of women and animals, were a source of power for Kiser and offer us insight into HerSELF.
