As we enter the holiday season, it seems timely to feature works with the theme of "Celebrations". Indeed, this year more than most, it is important that we are reminded that life presents us not only with challenges but also with opportunities to recognize and celebrate the beau
Celebrations is a festive combination of new works by our 12 artists inviting us to celebrate the glory of the season: Kiyomi Baird, David A. Clark, Carlos Frias, Wes Hunting, Robert Koch, Chad Manley, Mario Martinez, Ivan McLean, Kristina Varjan, Raul Villarreal and Janice Walsh. Many of the works in this show are personal expressions of the artists's struggles with the creative process and life in general and yet through this process something beautiful emerges. Those moments, however prosaic or profound are worth celebrating. The context of the struggle and of the artists' breakthrough varies based on their backgrounds, cultures, etc.; but the theme of celebratory perseverance is the same.
