'Requiem' : (a passage of influence)
* "In Native American culture, it is believed that the Universe is a mirror that reflects the existence of all things, including life and death. For those of us seeking deeper understanding, any perceived object, idea, person can represent the mirror and generate the vision needed to guide us toward wholeness. Many of us have lost valuable friends and loved ones who touched and inspired us throughout their lives. Although separated by death, our connection with these individuals remains ongoing, interpersonal and timeless, as their influence continually reflects back to us and in the art we create.
For this exhibition, artists were asked to submit work that demonstrates the personal and expressive fulfillment of this influence. The substance of the work ranges from the tangible and tactile to the spiritual and obscure. The position of the person (or persons) specified need not have been an artist , but they historically, developmentally, and creatively hold an exceptional place in the hearts and minds of the artists". *
