November Show - "Survivors" - John Chaffee
During the month of November the front rooms will be filled with the work of sculptor John Chaffee. The theme of the exhibit is "Survivors."
About "SURVIVORS": survivors of calamity ... medical or circumstantial; unprepared for the suddenness and enormity of confrontation. Surviving through Creativity: the parent of Hope and Motivation.
The bas reliefs you'll experience are creative expressions of a survivor's affirming the sensation of existence, and the hope ... desire ... for the continuance of that existence.
My favorite traditional response to the query: "How are you?"
Repy: " Still here."
We hope to see you at The Nelson Gallery
27 W. Washington Street in Lexington, VA.
A reception will be held on Friday November 1st, from 5pm until 7pm
