Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on June 1, 2017 for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Sarah Shaffer. The show titled “We Are What We Think” is a series of drawings and paintings that utilize the visual representation of neurons to portray the human body.
Inspiration for the collection came from the affects neurons have on who we are as people. As we grow our minds and personalities are shaped by experience; we literally are what we think. Each piece is an illustration of neurons forming various parts of the body as well as the entire human figure.
The opening reception of “We Are What We Think” will take place on Thursday, June 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of June.
