Opens: April 7 / Runs: April 7-28, 2017
Aeternus is an exhibition that explores the superior entities that have populated our mythologies since the dawn of reason among homo sapiens. From the earliest veneration of our planet’s life-giving sun, through the varied polytheistic mythologies that subsequently developed over time, and to the monotheism of the world’s most cultivated religions of modern times, gods have been given authority over our lives as creators, providers and overseers, whether interceding in our lives or not. For thousands of years rich cultures of worship, ritual, and have developed with beautiful stories that give life meaning to many people. Deities will feature works of art by international, national, and local artists who are inspired by these stories presented in a variety of mediums.
