“More Than Dreams” Opening Night Reception
September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Opening Night Reception for “More Than Dreams: Exploring the Surreal in Art” at the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art on September 24.
Featuring artwork by Bronislaw Bak, Alexander Berdysheff, Gary Chapman, Larkin Ford, Vladimir Kush, and Carlos Solis.
Surrealism was a cultural movement in the early 20th century known for mixing fantasy and dreams with reality. Surrealist art and literature over the past century have explored distant, obscured, or tainted realities, endeavoring to reach into and uncover the unconscious parts of the mind through creative expression.
In this group exhibition of six artists, MCMA explores the use of surreal imagery and processes with a selection of paintings. This exhibition will allow guests the opportunity to examine how and why artists have continued, even to this day, to create representations of distorted realities that can be seen as bizarrely whimsical, but also eerily bleak.
