The theme of this semester’s art show is a dual theme of Nature and Magic. These two ideas can go hand in hand because of the mystical wonder that surrounds them. Many people say that nature has a kind of magical quality to it, so the art produced from that blending alone will be astounding.
The topic of Nature can be interpreted in so many creative ways. It is a cute scene of a family walking through a meadow, picnic blanket in the distance, and the sun shining in a sparsely clouded sky. It is a beautiful forest with slimmers of light glowing through a shrouded canopy of peaceful leaves. It is the secrets of the darkness in the depths of the woods, the creatures unseen and the stories untold. It is the beauty of Mother Nature.
The idea of Magic is a topic that delves into the bottom of people’s imagination. It is the youthful explanation of all that is unexplainable and wondrous in the world. It is the basis of the fantasy novels and adventures that are read and played in so many minds. It is the glimmer in the night that amazes and terrifies and intrigues the wishful onlooker. It is the birth of imagination.
The dual theme of this art show is Nature and Magic. The way these two topics can spark imagination will lead to some wonderfully inspired art. Please, enjoy!
