A Splendid Summer Showcase
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
In A Splendid Summer Showcase, the 19 artists represented share a novel way of viewing the world; a way that once transferred into an artistic expression, either in painting, sculpture, or photography, unfolds naturally and genuinely the beauty in nature that surrounds us all and the human emotions that emerge from day-to-day life experiences. The artists, by following their intuition, their passions, their interests, their morals, and their views, create pieces that are intriguing, meaningful, and relatable. Through the dense organic textures, bold colors, sharp marks, dramatic contrasts with light and darkness, all done with various mediums, the artists remind the viewer of the miracle and mystery of life.
Although the artists come from all types of backgrounds, they all include an aspect of their respective culture to their pieces, allowing A Splendid Summer Showcase to be a worldly exhibition that unites us all through the power of art. The artists compose landscapes and portraits, abstract and realistic, all inspired by themes surrounding politics, society, religion, race, music, literature, dance, nature, and overall humanity, transpiring compassion, positivity, and peace. Art allows individuals to slow down and be reminded of the full range of emotions that can be experienced, which ultimately serve to heal, grow, and improve, jointly connected in the world.
A Splendid Summer Showcase opens on August 24, 2019 and will be on display until September 14, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 6 PM - 8 PM. Entrance to the gallery is free and open to the public.
