“Winds of Change”
Change is the act of creating or becoming something different. We can see change all around us: the seasons; birth, life and death; changes in our family and friends; in our community; in plants and animals; the weather; politics- everywhere. Change can be challenging, and it can also be an opportunity for growth and transformation. For our October juried exhibit, “Winds of Change,” we invited all artists to submit works that speak to the theme of change and transformation. The exhibit consists of 43 pieces created by 27 regional artists and represent a range of media including oil and acrylic paintings, photography, mixed media works, and a sculptural piece. All are invited to the reception which will take place on Saturday, October 15 from 3-5 PM in the Wakelin Room. Prizes will be awarded and several artists will speak about their work.
