Art As Anecdote is an exhibition about the events, impressions, and ambitions that are part and parcel of an artist's daily grind and the unlikely meanings they generate for others.

This show looks to the resources of a non-profit institution (where, ostensibly, artists' best interests are always in mind) and begs the question: Why is it that what makes an artwork so meaningful 'to a broad audience' is often what makes an artwork incredibly personal and unique?
