of all the art mediums, CLAY has the most history , oldest found art, and the most attached emotions for ,our modern artist. Equipment has long been understood as romantic and mysterious, thanks to cultural representations such as movies and the works themselves. Clay is a sensitive, seductive material that responds to the touch. It’s surface can look like many materials, wood, metal, stone, shell, fish, fur, bone there is no end to the list of the great transformer.

A coyote’s howl, splash of blood, and a bleeding worldgave life to a reception to die for. Exhibit 13, created by and featuring Agustin W. Cisneros, with other friends, used all dimentions of the gallery, and traveled beyond the definition of comtempory art. Features jump out, hung, stand tall, or flat against a wall left viewers mindful of a power within. Joan Sowinski’s in depth work, “Fortuna’s Wheel”along with her artist statement examines in a profound, reflective way that the skelleton does not always mean a final destination. Dakota Brooks DJ’d and sang sounds for an added treat to the evening.
Death, mortality, rebirth, resurrection, (continuation of the soul) as fortuna’s wheel.
Art as illustration and argument persuading a point of view. Inspiration is Ovid the poet from Roman times (45 BC) as the first mention of Fortuna’s wheel as a vehicle to good fortune or bad. Developing the thought that perhaps even a talisman might not weigh the scales in favor of a higher position in a community, warmth in the winter, coolness in summer, abundant agriculture and even the idea that after death the spirit will not be subject to the laws of the seasons of birth, life, aging and death of the earthly inhabitants, that luck is the apex in which to raise above, and live renewed, resurrected, metamorphosed.
What is good luck? Is it a goddess fickle and un yielding or a fragment of life, a bone, a rock, a likeness of a woman, carried with a thought that the object carries a power over life, death and beyond? Can the human be of moral fortitude thru good deeds and hard work and therefore be granted luck, fortune, love and even eternal life? Can a talisman weigh the scale in a predicted manner? Or point out the man that receives these gifts of wealth, love and happiness and ultimately life after death. Fortuna is depicted as a skeleton not as a goddess but as a human, once subject to the laws of nature riding the wheel of fortune considering the metamorphose of the butterfly, posing the question of the grander prize from the wheel is the lifting of earthy constraints such as death itself.

A very innovative show presenting the juxtapositions between the definitions of what we see and what is really there.Jacqueline Moore’s one man show gave us the ability “…..to see our world and ourselves anew.” Guests admired and studied the pixelizations to understand the redefinition they were , experiencing. Also, included is a installation titled “Collision” and another called “DNA” is shown as a heap of fallen blocks of wood. Books of poetry and short stories by Jacqueline are for sale in the gift shop. Show runs till the end of September.
Redefinition Exhibit featuring Jacqueline Moore. Redefinition is a show leading you the viewer to question how you may see yourself and the world around you. With constant bombardment of images in the mass media and this consumer society, you alone decide whether you will be molded by this culture and technological facade, or you break free from the mold.
Reception: Sep.7 @ 7-10pm

A reception to remember. From here I will be quoting Agustin W. Cisneros from his prose “Once Upon A Time”. “Imagine a world where time has no substance. You just might find yourself in a diaphanous ethereal web of a dream world. Before your eyes, you see abundant marvels of celestial beauty all around. Here in this haze there is a timelesstale to be told. Here, you find yourselfOnce Upon A Time.” Adding to the enchantment was the music ofWaynell Montgomery with his sax and flute. Photos by William.
