According to Wikipedia, “Installation art describes an artistic genre of site-specific, three-dimensional works designed to transform the perception of a space. Installation art can be either temporary or permanent. Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public- and private spaces. The genre incorporates a very broad range of everyday and natural materials, which are often chosen for their evocative qualities….”

Or maybe Dictionary.reference.com's definition will be better:
Installation Art: Art that is created, constructed, or installed on the site where it is exhibited, often incorporating materials or physical features on the site.

This is only one example of what an installation piece could look like. Like everything art related, there are many ways an artist might create an installation, or interpret the definition of installation art. Installation pieces can be created inside or outside. An installation piece is not limited to a room; it could merely take up a corner. It could be a repetitive object that fills one area, such as one or two walls, rather than the whole room. It can occupy and interact with the out of doors. The only limitation is the imagination, and possibly the physical aspects of the installation location.
We're not entirely sure what K. Pannepacker will do with our gallery, plus your wrapping paper, resolutions, and to-do lists. She'll be creating her installation on-location just days before the Opening Reception. Just like waking up and finding gifts inexplicably appearing under the Christmas tree, this show will be a bit of a mystery until the last moment. I'm looking forward with great anticipation to the unveiling.
So if you'd like to participate with us, please send us, or drop off, your left over wrapping paper, New Years Resolutions (anonymous please!) and To-do lists Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 to 2:00 PM for Wrap it Up, Already!
