DAY FOR NIGHT
February 16 – April 19, 2017 | Main Gallery
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, February 16 5:30 – 8:00pm
In the Sonoran Desert the transition of day into night and back again is an ever-changing display that exhibits the subtle and dramatic effects of light and darkness. Beaming sunrises and burning sunsets signal the sequence of the diurnal, the crepuscular, and the nocturnal. The cycle of each day affects not only the colors of the earth and the sky but also the movements and lives of the plants and the creatures that inhabit them.
Light and darkness stir the senses, evoking mood and activating nature.
CALL FOR ENTRIES | Artists are asked to explore the diurnal, crepuscular, and nocturnal worlds of the Sonoran Desert. The many colors, moods, shapes, patterns, plants, creatures and stories they find will be fascinating. The possibilities are endless. Artists from the region are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this juried exhibition.
