Theme: Kaleidoscope


“Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope - a slight change, and all patterns alter.” - Sharon Salzberg

A kaleidoscope is a viewing instrument that creates a continually changing pattern of shapes and colors. It is a treasure trove of beautiful colors, ever shifting, ever delightful to the eye. It draws the viewer into a new world that envelopes their vision with an infinity of patterns. For this exhibition we are seeking works that are extravagant to view, works that evoke drama or strong emotions through the use of color, shape, pattern or line. Kaleidoscope can also be interpreted as meaning a wide range of ideas, a multitude of people dressed in colorful costumes, or a space filled with shifting, colorful lights. It can also depict sunlight interacting with nature, the brilliance of someone’s eyes, or the iridescent body of an insect or bird. Multiple interpretations of this theme are encouraged.
