SoMMA Summer Members Exhibition

Between Truth and Illusion

Picasso said: “Art is the lie that transforms the truth”.  Through the use of mediums and skill the artist transforms paint, paper and objects into the illusion of realistic form.  A sculptor transforms marble into flesh, a landscape painting brings a place that we’ve never been into our home, indeed, all paintings give us the illusion of a three dimensional space rendered in two dimensions.  The artist begins with truth and shows us an illusion that comes full circle in revealing truths within the viewer.

Enter your vision of the space between truth and illusion in our second and final members show for 2018.  This is  your chance to SHINE so put your best brush forward and dream up something vibrant and new and exciting. Mixed media has limitless possibilities, show what you do with those possibilities.

If you can’t enter a piece for this show, then make plans to attend the opening.  Art openings at the CCPVB are fun, last year we had live music (thanks to Sandy Blake’s husband, Bill) and refreshments and it was a lovely experience.
