The visual arts make a wonderful medium for capturing the memories of dreams, which we often find elusive and hard to describe. Several art movements have used dreams as a source of inspiration, including Symbolism, Romanticism, Surrealism, and some styles of Contemporary Art. The Exchange asked for artwork on the subject of dreams — daydreams, aspirational dreams, nightmares, or other visions — with all media accepted, and as always from ALL artists of all ages and levels of experience. We received 89 pieces by 48 artists from eight central-Pennsylvania counties.
In association with the show, we will host another of our Storytelling events at the Gallery, on Tuesday, January 31st; please get in touch if you would like to tell one!
