Founded by artist Anthony Cervino and art historian Shannon Egan, Ejecta Projects is an art gallery, an artist’s studio, and a quiet space to consider collaborative artistic and curatorial undertakings. Located in downtown Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Ejecta Projects not only offers exhibition and consignment opportunities for artists, but also serves as a gesture toward community investment, a place for connection among people who crave an atmosphere of warmth and creativity. The space is conceived as the progeny of a 2015 co-written book and co-curated exhibition titled "Ejecta." Ejecta Projects, like its earlier iteration, examines themes of failure and success, parenthood and marriage, materiality and mortality. Exhibitions and endeavors not only reflect these personal and professional preoccupations, but also respond to encounters with a broad repertoire of artists and engaged audiences.
When we started Ejecta Projects we wanted to complement the progressive, community-driven programs and businesses that make Carlisle so special. We also wanted to do our part to foster and support change. While we understand that individual artworks or exhibitions are unlikely to dramatically incite the social, political, and environmental shifts that we know are necessary for a healthy and sustainable society, we are firm believers that art promotes an atmosphere that supports reflection and growth. Like oxygen feeding a flame, art accelerates the “fire” that spurs change.
Please know that Ejecta Projects is constantly self-assessing our mission and that we are committed to bringing more attention to artists, artworks, and issues that celebrate and promote diversity, equity, justice, and inclusion.
