Liberty Arts presents “Personal Mythology” opening reception Friday, May 11, 2012.
This Personal Mythology exhibit, curated by Melanie Harrington and Melinda Whipplesmith Plank, features artworks created with the awareness and intention of expressing the artists’ own myths.
An artist can scarcely help but reveal his mythology in his work – subject matter, concept, palette, tone, all say something about what the artist believes. But, too, there are explicit expressions of myth in meaningful symbolism, philosophical content, and conceptual story-telling, as in the works of William Blake, Paul Klee, and George Lucas, just to name a few.
Submissions still being accepted for this show!
The deadline has been extended to April 30, 2012.

Special Opening Night Activity: The Sharing of the Myths
All persons, “artists” or not, are invited to submit one (1) Artist Trading Card (ATC) depicting a favorite mythological character. The character may be from any era in history and originating in any mythological, religious or personal belief. The ATC must be a rectangle of 2.5 by 3.5 inches. The ATC must be original work, and can be created using any media. Please sign and date the back of the card, and feel free to provide other information (website, blogsite, email address).
All ATC’s should be brought to the Liberty Arts Gallery during the opening night of “Personal Mythology”, where a “Sharing of the Myths” altar will be the site for a trading session. Any artist who brings an ATC can trade his card for the ATC of another artist.
