"MASQUERADE": A Multi-Media Arts Event and Masquerade Ball!
Opening reception and "masked gathering"
SATURDAY MAY 22nd, 2010 From 7-10 PM
for those who may want to purchase a mask for this event, there will be a limited amount of masks available for sale at the door
This exhibit will include masks and other art works by artists responding to symbolic and concrete uses of masks related to carnival, ceremonial, spiritual, and other societal appearances of "masking". The exhibition will examine the mask as a wearable work of art, as a means of hiding or changing the identity of a person, as a protective device, literal and metaphoric meanings of"masking" in contemporary culture.
Historically, mask-makers have shown great resourcefulness in selecting and combining a wide array of materials. Artists in this exhibition also incorporate familiar and unexpected materials in their works.
