Art Loop Wilmington
Reception Friday, December 6 from 5-8 pm
Artist and SciArt Educator, Dolores Bartholomew will present her award-winning “Meanings of the Heart Art” series. Using the holiday season as her inspiration, Dolores explores the theme of Traditions and Memories and how essential they are for creating lasting bonds of connection among us. It will consist of heart-warming images of the holiday season and will cover many different kinds of traditions that occur throughout the exhibition. Her work is intended to help us reflect and focus on how families, friends, and community can enjoy the many customs and share them with others as a way of creating lasting and warm memories that science has shown brings individuals and communities closer at heart.
Dolores will share her family practice of counting down to Christmas with an Advent Calendar as part of the exhibition in which every day, starting from December 1st to the 24th she will reveal a new work of art or inspirational phrase of the calendar that will be on display in the gallery. Each will be a suggestion of how we may take a mindful moment and share in the act of kindness or activity. She will also draw upon how the holiday season is celebrated around the world with her illustrated series of the celebration of 12th Night and how we may celebrate each of the 12 days of Christmas with illustrations of a customary cookie and a tradition of other world cultures.
Light refreshments. All are welcome!
