Untitled by Samedi Djeimguero © 2018 Creativity Explored Licensing, LLC, mixed media on paper, 22 x 30 inches

David Prowler, President of CE's Board of Directors, curated this new exhibition to connect Creativity Explored and the San Francisco Zen Center.

Both institutions offer unique ways to see and experience the world beyond the "in your face" workaday one.

The artwork was chosen to give a glimpse of a transcendent reality--one that is embodied in the spirit and legacy of both institutions.

The included artworks represent the beginnings of a dialog about transcendence that Prowler hopes will resonate into the future.

TRANSCENDENT features artwork by Samedi Djeimguero, Ricardo Estella, John Patrick McKenzie, Lance Rivers, Kevin Roach, Yukari Sakura, Hung Kei Shiu, Ana Maria Vidalon, Richard Wright, and Alexander Yeap.

Whipper Snapper Nerd, 1993 by John Patrick McKenzie (Issue #3), inspired the title of the zine series

Guest curators Harrell Fletcher and Elizabeth Meyer return to Creativity Explored to revisit their popular Whipper Snapper Nerd zine series.

Launched 25 years ago as a project to raise awareness of the lives and work of CE artists, Whipper Snapper Nerd is a self-published magazine or zine. Each issue is devoted to one artist and includes selections of their work and an interview.

The exhibition looks back at the original eight issues of the zine and celebrates two new ones devoted to current artists Christina Marie Fong and Gerald Wiggins. This retrospective coincides with a new book, featuring selections from all 10 issues of the zine produced to date.

Combining original artwork, zine excerpts, and videos created with CE artists, Whipper Snapper Nerd is not to be missed!

Featured artists include Barbara Doehrman, Christina Marie Fong, David Jarvey, Andrew Li, Michael Bernard Loggins, Robert Margolis, John Patrick McKenzie, James Miles, Diane Scaccalosi, and Gerald Wiggins.
