Alchemy - Opening Reception

\n

Inspired by the success of our November 2011 exhibition entitled < a href="http://www.theloftatlizs.com/blog2/red-november-2011-through-januar y-2012/" rel="nofollow">RED\, The Loft at Liz’s announces “Alc hemy” – a group exhibition strategically focusing on the color “gold”.  Fro m statements of value and prestige throughout recorded history to our eleme ntal reliance in modern technology\, this show will examine the variety of meanings behind the color and it’s usage in visual art.

\n

Alchemy is defined as any magical power or process of transmutation to turn a common s ubstance\, usually of little value\, into a substance of great value.  A fo rm of chemistry or speculative philosophy practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance\, alchemy is principally concerned with discovering methods for transmuting base materials into gold and finding a universal solvent o r elixir of life.

\n

Gold has been highly valued in many societies thr oughout the ages. In keeping with this it has often had a strongly positive symbolic meaning closely connected to the values held in the highest estee m in the society in question. Gold may symbolize power\, strength\, wealth\ , warmth\, happiness\, love\, hope\, optimism\, intelligence\, justice\, ba lance\, perfection\, summer\, harvest and the sun.  Come witness the transm utation of gold as The Loft at Liz’s presents Alchemy.
