Last Weekend to see “Art Reflected”

Nancy Gong had the right idea. Earlier this week, she set up a time to meet with Chris Maggio to catch some photographs and video of her piece “War Bride” currently on display in Art reflected: The Inspiration of 100 Years. This will be the last weekend to be able to view all of the the works as they hang on the Gallery walls, along side their inspiration.

Nancy told us that she appreciated the process of creating a personal piece, that began an exploration of her mother’s past. War Bride “… celebrates the strength, courage, forward thinking and experiences of a modern woman from 1925 through the 1980’s by tracing a War Bride’s life”, to quote an excerpt from the post on Nancy’s blog. Read the full post here.

Art Inspired includes pieces from 41 noted regional artists that have all reinterpreted objects from the Gallery’s collection. Their works are on view side by side with their sources of inspiration. All the new works are available for purchase through the Gallery Store.

This is the last weekend and your last chance to see this once-every-100-years exhibit. Don’t miss it.
