> DESCRIPTION

Both Nostradamus and the Mayan Calendar predict 2012 as the year that life, as we currently know it on Earth, will come to an end.   While the reality may not be quite so dramatic, the dawn of a new era may well occur before we know it.   Some folks envision the prophecies as an end, but others see them as an opportunity for a brighter beginning.

Humanity has always been fascinated by apocalyptic predictions, both frightening and redemptive.  Over 30 local, domestic and international artists’ interpret and illustrate where the change from 2012 to 2013 will take us.  The works explore themes of transition and re-birth.  Mediums include painting, photography, sculpture, print work, installation and digital.  The exhibit also includes a live performance by Chris Wille during the September 14th opening reception.

“We were very interested to see what the artists’ visions of the future would bring us.  It is quite a diverse array of intriguing ideas,” ” commented Chris Jackson, co-curator and director of Jackson Junge Gallery.
