Exhibit Opens - The Serious and Playful Sides of Light

I am very pleased to announce the opening of Still Point Art Gallery's exhibition - The Serious and Playful Sides of Light.

Artists were asked to respond to the
following theme:

Think about light. We need light to see, to find our way in the dark, to brighten our day, to cast hope upon despair. Think about light again. Consider the fun of bouncing the light from a flashlight around a room or using your hands to make shadowy characters in front of a bright light projected against a screen or white wall. Isn't it exciting to light candles on someone's birthday cake and watch the birthday girl's or boy's eyes light up too? Light. There is always such joy to realize that the shortest day of the year has come and gone and there will be more daylight in the coming weeks.

Artists think about light...a lot. Artists work with light...study light...appreciate light...play with light. This exhibition is intended to explore the many ways that artists show their understanding and use of light...the serious and playful sides of light.

Artists responded with fabulous submissions. Some of the art works in this exhibition will amaze you, some will warm your heart, some will surprise you, and some will bring a smile to your face. Light has such power...such importance, and it takes a very skilled and attentive artist to present light in ways that are true to its nature. You will meet such artists in this exhibition.

The online exhibition opens today, December 2, and continues as a featured exhibition through February 9, 2010. Be sure to visit!
