You know that feeling? is rooted in genuine creativity that rejects the restrictions of art within institutionalized academia that creates unrealistic expectations and timelines. The participating artists: Sammy Grubman, Courtney McCall, and Amiya McInnis aim to reclaim that feeling of stimulation and satiation that comes with creating art within one’s own ability and temporal capacities. Within their works, they emphasize the emotions tied to the physical and mental process of creating art.
