BEAUTY or TRUTH
An exhibition by Pacific Rim Sculptors
Members of Pacific Rim Sculptors are encouraged to submit images of their three-dimensional artwork for consideration to be included in the exhibition BEAUTY or TRUTH.
BEAUTY or TRUTH
While it is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Merriam Webster defines it as “a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses” and truth as “that which is in accordance with fact or reality.” The Latin phrase Pulchritudo splendor veritatis (beauty is the splendor of truth) is thousands of years old, and suggests that beauty and truth are interrelated. John Keats famously declared “Beauty is truth, truth beauty, -- that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
As truth has been called into question in our current politically-charged era, we are seeking sculptural artworks that reference beauty or truth, ranging from the purely aesthetical to issue-related, or that address both.
ART WORKS DOWNTOWN The exhibition will be held at Art Works Downtown’s 1337 Gallery from August 7- September 18, 2020. Art Works Downtown, Marin County's premier non-profit art center, is located on Fourth Street in downtown San Rafael, CA. http://www.artworksdowntown.org/
Art Works Downtown is open Tues-Sat, 10-5pm. Artists’ receptions will coincide with Second Friday Art Walk on Friday August 14 and Friday September 11, 5-8pm. Accepted artists are expected to attend both receptions.
