The end of summer
The end of summer…the closing of El Mar
Summer has gone. Maybe not completely, as vestiges of its heat still loom on the horizon, and lingering traces warm the increasingly shorter afternoons. But the mornings are now touched by the chill of autumn, so welcome after months of unbearable heat. And with the close of the season, so too does the exhibition of The Sea.
This collective exhibition, which brought together diverse artists and insights, was a tribute to the sea in all its forms: the gentle waves of sunrise; the happiness of childhood memories; tempestuous storms; and the plight of migrants trying to find sanctuary. Photography, installation, and both traditional and contemporary painting came together, as varied and mutable as the ocean itself. Calm and wild, joy and sadness, the sea mirrors human experience. In its waters we see ourselves, our thoughts, our emotions. Its tides are the rhythm of our lives, its colors the stuff of our dreams.
A big thank you to all the artists who contributed to this exhibition.
