Confidence is Not a Four-Letter Word

Posted on February 17 2012

Paradigm Gallery + Studio & The University of the Arts Alumni Association Present:
Confidence is Not a Four-Letter Word
January 27th – February 18th

It is a common theme for artists to never be fully satisfied with their work. Even if we find ourselves feeling confident, we do not want to appear arrogant, so we go through the game of being overly humble when receiving compliments and sometimes even cut up our own work. As a part of this group exhibition of exclusively University of the Arts Alumni, all artists involved have submitted a piece that, with confidence, each can say, “I am proud of this.”

Confidence is Not a Four-Letter Word will exhibit a wide range of artistic forms, from visual to performing arts. Each work in this exhibition is accompanied by a 5” x 7” frame that tells the story of the piece through words and/or images chosen by the artist.
