Exhibition “Memories of Things Past” Opened June 2 At The Art Galleryby Charles Spillar on May. 30, 2010, under arts, Tucson Art
The ART Gallery is having an opening reception for their new exhibition titled “Memories of Things Past” on June 4th. The exhibition offers some very thought-provoking subjects in each artist’s individual style from humor to sadness.
Many older people I have met in their later years in life have often told me that their “memories” are the one thing they have that are the most value to them now. They explained to me that having great wealth, lots of possessions, cars, homes, etc. begin to be less important when your aging body and health become a challenge. Their memories become the most important possession they now have that can never be taken away.
Cars wear out. Homes become burdensome. Most of their possessions become a burden and begin to only occupy space, but their memories can be visualized and enjoyed until the end of their life. The one thing that all humans have whether rich or poor is our memories. They may be happy, sad or maybe just periods of blah.
This juried exhibition featuring paintings, sculpture, & photography by regional artists, including Fred Collins, John Wilson, Charles Spillar, Alex Arshansky, Kyle Johnston, and many others.
