DESCRIPTION

12.21.2012
End of the World Art Show

New work by Val Huffman, Shawn Berard, Michael Luczak

End of the World Art Show opens on the day the Mayan calendar ends, marking the end of a five-thousand-year era. The beginning of every evolutionary cycle brings an era of great change, human innovation, and accompanying destruction of old ways.

Artwork in this exhibit will offer visions of a future where earth and mankind’s fate change in unison. Each artist approaches this theme by 'uncovering' their unique style and commentary on the new earth cycle to follow, with an interesting blend of darkness, humor, and hope.

More info on the Maya Calendar, Book of Revelations, and predictions by Nostradamus.

Artist Info:

VAL HUFFMAN
Val is a Winnipeg graphic artist and photographer who began his career as a commercial printer over three decades ago. Somewhere in the nineteen-nineties he found himself working and creating in the digital world. Soon web design and coding skills became necessary in order to continue progressing and earning a living, which required such intense focus that all manual methods of creating art were abandoned for a time. After a career in the digital publishing and web design industry, including over a decade of teaching at local technical colleges, Val is now in business as a digital preservationist and consultant for arts and cultural organizations, and a part owner of cre8ive supplies & services.

"The pieces chosen for this show represent a gradual move away from the digital world, back into the delightfully messy place where the mind, the hand, and the eye can move freely without the ever-present electronic leash. Although I often continue using digital tools as part of my workflow, it's just been a great feeling to get my head out of the computer more often!"
