“Personal Mythology” Event Announcement
8 years, 5 months ago Posted in: Past Events 1

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.

  1. A year latter the young designer became a fashion superstar when he designed elaborate costumes for “the party of the century” masquerade ball in Venice.
    After that Cardin was seen as something of a fashion wunderkind.
    Additionally, his clothes became more of a significant profession for his love of science fiction. It is not important to follow the
    latest trends and styles; what is more important is to know your
    individual style. This style looks great with anything you pair it with –
    – as long as it makes sense.
