The artworks of twenty-five anonymous artists were selected by a panel of judges for the group exhibition Art Anonymous, hosted by Off Island Studio in collaboration with Project Space 1785. The exhibit displayed at Project Space 1785, 1795 Old Dixie Hwy, Vero Beach, FL, in March 2020. Viewing was during gallery hours: Wednesday through Friday, 3 pm to 6 pm, and Saturday 11 am to 2 pm. The Opening Night Reception was held Friday, March 6, 2020, 5 pm to 9 pm, at Project Space 1785.
“The objective of this collaboration is to invite regional, national and international artists to explore art beyond their usual style and subject matter, to challenge themselves and the audience with expressions of personal discovery and comment,” according to Off Island Studio posts. Although pseudonyms and aliases could be used by the exhibiting artists, all art on display remained anonymous to gallery visitors to encourage the artists to venture openly into untried and possibly uncomfortable subject matter, challenging their usual body of work and focusing heavily on content and concept. Upon sales, artists had the opportunity to decide, if they wanted to reveal themselves exclusively to buyers.
