Souvenirs of Summer Exhibition

Souvenirs of Summer Exhibition

As summer swiftly comes to a close, we transition to new schedules, rituals, and routines. 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. Perhaps our parents are in the autumn of their years. Often we are too busy to savor the fleeting moments. Or maybe we are acutely aware that this is the very moment we will miss.

We asked artists to share their representation of that concept and these queries:
What conjures up a sense of nostalgia? What have you lost?

What do you hold most dear?  For what do you long?
See homage to a different time when children were curious and played freely. There are documents of special places that have changed over time. Witness reminders of all that is precious and ephemeral. 

Each year in late August, Fabulon artists regroup after vacation adventures to show recent work, commemorate the passage of time, and start off the new gallery season. We call this show

This year we welcome some new artists, local friends, and new acquaintances from across the nation.
