What In the dark of winter, we seek light – a flame to warm us, a torch to carry. This year, the artists at Kehler Liddell Gallery ask you to join us in offering illumination. We look to you for a ray of sunshine, a path of enlightenment, a spark. Set us ablaze with candles and lanterns, provide a flash of brilliance to absorb and reflect on, elucidate something by making visible that which is obscure. Bring a little levity to lighten the mood and our hearts. Winter maybe be dim, and we all cast shadow, these things we know. But please – in any media or mode you shine in – give us something to help light our way.

What The idea of reimagining history is not new in the world of art and literature. The works of artists such as Robert Colescott, Cindy Sherman, and Enrique Chagoya examine issues of race, gender, ethnicity, and political identity through their visual retelling of iconic images and historical figures. In literature, examples span from Herodotus’ The Histories in 440 BC to Tolstoy’s War and Peace to the contemporary Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Arts Benicia, a non-profit art center in Benicia, CA, is inviting artists to submit artworks that reimagine and reconsider histories, be it of a personal nature or global scope.

What Arc Gallery is seeking works that are extravagant to view, works that evoke drama or strong emotions through the use of color. Kaleidoscope can also be interpreted as meaning a wide range of options, a crowd of people dressed in colorful costumes, or a space filled with shifting, colorful lights such as a disco. It can also depict sunlight interacting with nature, the brilliance of someone’s eyes, or the iridescent body of an insect or bird. An actual kaleidoscope would also be welcome in this exhibition.
