Music: Rebels & Visionaries Gallery

Photography by Jan Partin

Music: Rebels & Visionaries (July)

Exhibit July 1 – 31
Reception July 14, 2 to 4

Often, songs of rebellion and vision are responses to wars, from “The Star Spangled Banner” to songs from the Civil War, World Wars I and II, to the Vietnam War, and after.

However, music genres may also reflect rebellion or a visionary spirit:  Folk songs, Jazz, Swing, R & B, Rock ‘n Roll, Rock, Hip Hop, Alternative, etc.  Performers, musicians, lyricists, and music composers, including film composers like John Williams or Philip Glass, may be rebels or visionaries.

Artists are asked to submit their interpretations of any music or musical artist, with work that reflects the meaning of this theme, in any artistic style, from traditional to contemporary, in its many forms.

The Wildness of Nature
March 1 – 29, 2013

Nature – a creative and controlling force in the universe; the whole system of existence, forces, and events of the physical world that are not controlled by man; a wild primitive state untouched by man; the realm of geology and wildlife – plants, animals, birds, insects, reptiles, rocks, mountains, trees, forests, oceans, rivers, lakes, and ecosystems.

Love (Feb)


February 1-28, 2013
Reception February 10

Artists have been creating work expressing their interpretation of “love” since the beginning of time.

Love may be defined in many ways – as the strong affection and personal attachment one may feel for another person or animal; as the virtuous unselfish, and benevolent concern one may express for the good of another; as the compassionate actions one may take toward others, animals, or one’s self; as the passion, desire, and intimacy one may experience with another romantically; as the bond that develops between friends; as the protective connection within families; and as the selfless devotion one may express religiously.
