The Art of Remembrance
November 7- December 13, 2020
This community call for art exhibit honors those that have passed in portraits and a community altar. This exhibition expands on the tradition of Dia de los Muertos, by including art historical and contemporary genres of portraiture and welcomes all cultural practices of remembrance.
Bring an "ofrenda" or offering for the community altar. This is something to entice the spirit of a loved one back for a visit. Your offering can be a photo, poem, note, flowers, sweet treat, miniature beverage or something that the special person loved or shared with you. Or, simply add their name to the ribbon wall.
OPEN CALL for ART
This is an open call for art (no juror). Exhibit artwork honoring the dead. All media, styles and subject matter welcome (family, friend, animal, public figure, etc) by artists of all ages. Invite friends to add a photo or offering to the community altar. For questions contact the Gallery Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
