We find ourselves nearing autumn again and realizing how quickly the world passes through the cycling seasons. At the gallery, we are preparing for an exhibit that offers a voice for an anticipated change on a grander scale. "Apocalypse 2012 : Genesis 2013" explores the predictions of this calender's demise and what a new era might bring us.
Both Nostradamus and the Mayan Calendar predict 2012 as the year that life, as we currently know it on Earth, will come to an end. While the reality may not be quite so dramatic, the dawn of a new era may well occur before we know it. Some folks envision the prophecies as an end, but others see them as an opportunity for a brighter beginning.
We invite you to come visit the perspectives and interpretations of over 30 artists in this group exhibit Mingle and meet the artists over wine and hors d'oeuvres at the opening reception this Friday evening, September 14th, at 6pm.
We hope to see you soon!
Chris and Laura
|Apocalypse 2012 : Genesis 2013
What if the prediction become reality?
Sept. 14 - Oct. 28, 2012
Jackson Junge Gallery asked artists to render their vision of such an apocalypse and, more importantly, portray their ideas of what a new world might resemble. The artwork chosen for this exhibit illustrates exactly this duality.
Humanity has always been fascinated by apocalyptic predictions, both frightening and redemptive. Over 30 local, domestic and international artists interpret and illustrate where the change from 2012 to 2013 will take us. The works explore themes of transition and re-birth. Mediums include painting, photography, sculpture, print work, installation and digital.
