All that Glitters is Gold
A group exhibition curated by Melissa McCaig Welles and Cope2
February 6- March 2, 2009
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 7th, 7-10pm
McCaig Welles Gallery is pleased to announce All that Glitters is Gold, a group exhibition presented by Melissa McCaig Welles and guest curator Cope2.
The exhibition invites never-before-exhibited artists along with represented artists with upcoming solo shows at the gallery to interpret the expansive theme of the show in a restrained 18x24 art piece.
Gallery owner Melissa McCaig Welles, intrigued by the somber economic and political climate, was interested in the potential for varying responses and overlapping interpretations to the All that Glitters is Gold title. “The title, for me personally, directly corresponds with the current economic climate and the disaster on Wall Street. The fact that we all believed the hype and gave our money away to untrustworthy people, bought more homes than we could afford and basically believed in all that glittered ” states McCaig Welles. The show title invites artists to focus on what blinds human nature and perhaps, and hopefully, what redeems it.
