“What’s Past is Prologue,” a thematic group exhibit at Fuller Lodge Art Center includes the work of 29 different artists from northern New Mexico.
Whether we are reminiscing about the past or looking to the future, art often reflects bits of memory that are integral pieces of who we are today or hints of things to come based on our interests, longings and desires. See what the artwork evokes in you, the viewer.
The public is invited to attend an Opening Reception for “What’s Past is Prologue” 5-7 p.m., Friday, March 11 at Fuller Lodge Art Center. Talk to the artists about their interpretation of the theme. Light refreshments will be served.
The phrase “what’s past is prologue” appears in William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” Antonio suggests that the past has set the stage for their next act, murder, as a prologue does in a play.
Artists were challenged to consider how their current art has been shaped by their personal histories, or to look to the future and consider how today may be shaping tomorrow. “What’s Past is Prologue” will be on display March 11-April 16.
In the Portal Gallery Los Alamos artist Jeanne Hope Gibson shares her personal journey through recovery from a traumatic brain injury, which initially left her with aphasia, limited vision and PTSD. She had to relearn how to do art and how to accept color, which has become a kaleidoscope of constant movement to her. Gibson is predominantly a mixed media artist. The work in this show “Emergence” captures the confusion and loneliness of her journey.
Fuller Lodge Art Center, at 2132 Central Avenue, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Artwork may be previewed in slideshows on the website. Call 505.662.1635 with questions.
