January 19 through March 17, 2019
In the 21st century we are living busy, chaotic lives surrounded by technology and many other things that clamor for our attention. The artists included in Quiet Moments invite us to escape and revel in the soothing moments portrayed in their works of art. Contemplative and meditative, these pieces illustrate the period just before, or after, actions occur. Still scenes such as mist rising over an isle, a winter morning landscape, or an underwater world allow us to reflect, slow down and still our minds in order to be present in the moment.
By portraying calm spaces and scenes that we might otherwise speed on by in person, these artists help us to find beauty in simplicity.
