January 11 - February 28
Winter means many things to many people. In the northern countries it’s time to hunker down, to slow down so the soul and body can rest and renew. Winter is a season around which some communities create rituals and celebrations: hygge in Denmark, cosagache in Scotland. Winter redirects the mind toward staying warm — in body and spirit. Winter is a time of short gray days and long dark nights prompting some to ask, “What do you do up there all winter?”
“Winter” is a juried exhibition of 2D and 3D work. It explores the season in all its dimensions, representationally or symbolically. It asks exhibitors to visually represent how they feel about winter? To answer the oft-asked question: What DO you do up there all winter? To dig deeply into their own, personal snowbank of ideas, and bring us the answers.
