Curator’s Statement

This year (the 8th in the series) the work investigates LIGHT. As before, twelve artists were given identical formats to work with and then asked to interpret the theme in any way they wanted with the medium they normally work in. The resulting artwork speaks for itself. The artists hope their work will create within you some thoughtful responses and questions. For insights, artists’ names and relevant information, read the flyer provided as you enter the hallway (on the wall).

The Art on the Wall series is part of a multi-cultural exploration into the nature of creativity and understanding. The theme for the first four years came from the Classical Greek elements – earth, air, fire and water – that underscore Western understanding of the world around us. These were followed by the Chinese components of earth -- stone, metal and wood.

The theme of light is critical to all observation. Without light, we cannot see. It is especially critical to seeing color because all color is a reflection of light waves back to our eyes. Color is then dependent on the quality of light, quantity of light, and the reflected surface. How we see and perceive color is totally dependent on what surrounds the color. In a sense, it is magic.
