Souvenirs of Summer

all are welcome


Souvenirs of Summer
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.

Works will be on display from 8/14/17 through 10/06/17.
Artists’ Reception on 8/26/17 5:00-8:00pm.

Fabulon ART at Avondale Therapy presents:  In the Air 2 by Lynne Riding  Exhibition June 3- August 30th At Avondale Therapy Artist Reception June 10, 5-8pm Take a departure from the typical summer events and activities. Slip inside Avondale Therapy on 815 Savannah Highway. See the beautifully decorated lobby. Formally 4th Wall Gallery, the new owner of the space Elise Richards, graciously allows Fabulon to curate special shows here. This current show features cool blues and crisp lines that evoke the sense of a sultry summer wind. “Although my work is of an abstract nature, it always stems from the place and surroundings in which I find myself, from color observed, a line seen in space, or the found object. “ Lynne riding has a strong connection to the ocean both as an artist, and as a past competitive windsurfer and sailor. Originally from England, she now calls Charleston her home. She has a studio in West Ashley and teaches at The Art Institute.
