The opening reception will take place on Thursday, December 8, from 6-8PM. All works will be priced at $500 or less.
Exhibition Dates: December 8, 2016 to January 13, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 8, 6-8pm
During World War I and II, Victory Gardens were planted next to private homes and in public parks throughout North America, Europe and Australia. Designed to reduce pressure on the food supply, the gardens were also considered to be morale-boosting symbols of solidarity. Government-led campaigns were mounted, with lithographic posters targeting urban and rural dwellers alike and inspiring them to plant fruits and vegetables. Citizens felt empowered by their contributions to the war effort and rewarded by the produce grown. Today, our world is in political and environmental turmoil and we are similarly in need of nourishment and unification. The show will feature small paintings, prints, and works on paper that in some way connect to this theme.
