Group Show

Dates: October 7, 2021 

- November 1, 2021

This is an exhibit unlike any other. Several Artist Members joined together to produce work under one prompt: to depict Mythical Beings. Drawing from historic folklore and legends, as well as from their own imaginations, the artists show alluring depictions of tales from myth and lore. Whether the figures and creatures are derived from within or from outsourced stories, this show holds great company in the selected artists and subject matter.

From the artists…

“Myths, whether ancient, classical, traditional, modern, widely-known or personal, have distinct similarities. They are inhabited by all sorts of beings, both animate and inanimate. They are meant to be heard, read, told and shared. They tend to be amplified, twisted, distorted and hopefully, dramatized.

These stories have an undeniable influence on humans. Whether we hear them at our Grandma’s knee, dream about them, or read about them in a comic book, they leave indelible pictures in our mind’s eye and give us signposts on our life paths.

One of the joys and jobs of the artist is to play with old stories that rattle around in the human psyche, finding idiosyncratic ways to tell them, or inventing new, as yet unheard, stories inhabited by unique beings.

In this exhibition, we have wandered freely in the vast realm of mythology. Some of these beings and the stories in which they live will be familiar, others not. Here you will find twists, allusions and humor, accompanied by a sense of wonder and profound playfulness and mystery.”
