“Alchemy” - a group exhibition s trategically focusing on the color “gold”.  From statements of value and pr estige throughout recorded history to our elemental reliance in modern tech nology\, this show will examine the variety of meanings behind the color an d it’s usage in visual art.

\n

Alchemy is defined as any magical power or process of transmutation to turn a common substance\, usually of little value\, into a substance of great value.  A form of chemistry or speculati ve philosophy practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance\, alchemy is principally concerned with discovering methods for transmuting base materi als into gold and finding a universal solvent or elixir of life.

\n

Go ld has been highly valued in many societies throughout the ages. In keeping with this it has often had a strongly positive symbolic meaning closely co nnected to the values held in the highest esteem in the society in question . Gold may symbolize power\, strength\, wealth\, warmth\, happiness\, love\ , hope\, optimism\, intelligence\, justice\, balance\, perfection\, summer\ , harvest and the sun.  Come see our own transmutations of gold as The Loft at Liz’s presents Alchemy.
