Showing in the Main Gallery:

July 2019 - Themed Group Exhibit  Themes:"Canto" and/or "Mirrors and Reflections"  Mirrors and reflections are enormously important in art, and so common a theme, that you should keep an eye out for them: they will help explain the work's underlying meaning. The Greek root for Plato's word idea, eidos, literally means not just image or likeness but an image reflected in water or mirror.  Mirrors reflect light and thus reflect the world around us. Spiritually, light has symbolic attachment to illumination, awareness and wisdom. Therefore, in terms of spiritual symbolism, mirrors reflect truth. They reflect what is. 
Canto (Italian pronunciation: [ˈkanto]) is a principal form of division in medieval and modern long poetry. The word canto is derived from the Italian word for "song" or "singing", which comes from the Latin cantus, "song", from the infinitive verb canere, "to sing". The use of the canto was described in the 1911 edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica as " a convenient division when poetry was more usually sung by the minstrel to his own accompaniment than read". There is no specific format, construction or style for a canto and it is not limited to any one type of poetry. Create a canto in 2D or 3D for this exhibit.
