Gallery Protocol Summer Sessions is pleased to present Someplace Elsewhere, a group exhibition organized by guest curator Victor Perez. The exhibition features drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and video works from artists with shared origins in Gainesville, FL. Participating artists include Amanda Justice, Allie Blanchard, Abigail Clark, Britt Acoceli, Alicia Korn, Adam Frezza (of Chiaozza), Anna Kell, Colin Curry, Jason Mitcham, Jonathan Clyde Frey, and Zac Thompson.

The career of an artist often requires a nomadic lifestyle, establishing community only to move on and settle elsewhere indeterminately. This exhibition asks the questions: what things do we carry with us when we leave? How do our histories influence the way in which we move forward? Connected through their roots in Gainesville, these artists are also thematically linked through their explorations of history, memory, and nostalgia. Reflection on the past (as well speculation about the future) is utilized to contain, categorized, and investigate the unfamiliar present.
