The Second Half

July 1-31, 2021
Group Exhibition

For this gallery and online exhibition Las Laguna Art Gallery invited artists 50 or older to submit their works. As we grow older, the maturity and insight life has given us multiplies. The viewpoints and experiences that come with age are invaluable lessons to us all on how to live life - and live it well. This month we will celebrate the talent and wisdom of the artist over 50.

 

Many of the artists who submitted to this exhibition have spent half a life-time honing their skills and their craft. A few in our selection are new to art but they bring with them a myriad of experiences which helps create and inform their art. We are pleased to present to you The 2nd Half.

Works in this exhibition include Acrylic, Assemblage, Charcoal, Color Pencil, Collage, Digital Art, Drawings, Encaustic, Fiber Art, Graphite, Illustration, Mixed Media, New Media, Oil, Painting, Pastel, Photography (Traditional and Digital), and Watercolor. This show runs the entire month of July.

"With age, art and life become one.”  George Braque
