Flags, UFOs and Bad Weather
June 9 through June 30, 2012
Under the tenets of conventional wisdom, each of the following words; flags, UFOs, bad weather would appear to evoke distinct emotional responses that are completely unrelated. Artists however are not bound by such tenets. Seemingly unrelated concepts when combined often provide the precise creative force necessary to break down traditional barriers.
“With every individual or group opportunity there is an excitement to make something better, but there are also fears of failure or stress of complication. There is positive thinking and there is nervous cheerleading. I hope these drawings and paintings give a complex portrait of hand-wringing as well as moments of joy in our identity as individuals and as a nation.”
Camille Silverman, Executive Director/Curator, The Art Center, Grand Junction, Colorado
In this spirit, LuminArte Gallery is featuring original works from Camille Silverman who first conceived of the idea and then created a series of art work based on the theme Flags, UFOs and Bad Weather. Consistent with this theme, LuminArte Gallery invited a select group of outstanding artists to participate in this exciting and innovative exhibition. In addition to Camille, featured artists include George Adams of Colorado, Ronda Waiksnis of Georgia, Leila Noorani of California, Gina Marie Dunn of Dallas and Franceska McCullough formerly of Great Britain and now of Dallas.
