Each year, O’Hanlon Center for the Arts celebrates the “Wabi Sabi” theme with a juried Gallery exhibit.
“…celebrating the simple, the rustic, the unassuming; the dignity of things imperfect,
uncontrolled and incomplete; the transient beauty of the natural world…”
When seeking to understand Wabi-Sabi, it is helpful to contemplate the idea that beauty is inherent in a simple object, which in turn evokes a quiet, thoughtful mood and atmosphere. The emphasis of this exhibit is not on the final perfected form of the work, but on how well pieces reflect a sense and feeling of this elusive concept. In particular, focus is on the imaginative use of natural materials that may include found objects.
Juror: Mary-Ann Milford-Lutzker, PhD
