September Exhibit Go To Top
misc_none The Dance of Life: Land Sea and Sky Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Silk Road Art Guild presents: The Dance of Life: Land Sea and Sky.  This exhibit will focus on our natural world, its beauty and its fragility.  The world is our only home and we want to celebrate it and preserve it for the generations yet to come.  Our art focuses on the earth from the perspective of that Eastern sensibility which tells us that the life around us is indeed the life within us as well.  Art is the expression of the human response to life as it is lived.  The paintings and weavings shown in this exhibit are the creation of the artists and the natural objects are the creation of time, water, air and earth.
