“Anicca” Opening and Closing Receptions
8 years, 11 months ago Posted in: Past Events 10

Liberty Arts kicks off the 2012 season with a community art project called “Anicca – 500 Hours Of Art.”

Anicca (pronounced /əˈnik ə/) is a Pali word used in Buddhism referring to the belief that all things, including the self, are impermanent and constantly changing.

For this exhibition, we will tape off the walls of the gallery, provide a diverse collection of art materials and invite the public to come in and draw, write, paint, and sketch directly on the walls.

Therefore, the community is actually creating the show, which is ever changing over the course of its three-week run (i.e. 500 hours).

Of course, once the run is over, we will repaint the walls of the gallery to prepare for the next exhibit – which is where the whole “impermanence” thing come into play.

    Sorry to have missed the exciting Opening Night’s festivities. Glad I came in a few days later to paint an idea that just popped into my
    mind for the occasion. Loved what all the artists painted and thanks to everyone who created everything to make this wonderful idea work!! It was a great event. Thanks also to Scott Valley Bank for their generous donation of artists materials.

    Speaking of bringing materials, is it okay to bring torn strips of photograph screen prints to paint/glue onto the wall?

    • admin says:

      Pam – Yes, at this point, you are allowed to bring your own materials. We look forward to seeing what you create!

  6. Monica Zinda says:

    Can I bring my own materials? I’d like to create an art glass mosaic if possible. Can we say “hot glue?
