Souvenirs of Summer
National call, open to all artists 18 and older. All media shall be considered.
This will be the third version of a show Fabulon hosts about the significant and symbolic transitions of summer’s end. Each year in late August, artists regroup after vacation adventures to show recent work and commemorate the new gallery season. Between years one and two we saw fewer scenes of the sun fading on the beach and the last of the vine ripe tomatoes to portrayals of the feelings that the changing seasons evoke, gathering indoors and hunkering down for winter.
This year we seek deep themes of transition and the passage of time. For some it is a new beginning associated with starting school, but for others it is bittersweet evidence that children are growing up and venturing out.
What conjures up a sense of nostalgia? What have you lost?
What do you hold most dear? For what do you long?
