Revisiting Beauty


An International / Domestic Call for Art, Juried By Peter Frank



April 29 - May 29, 2010

Reception May 1, 6 - 10 PM, Free

Margaret Bowland "Wedding-Cake"

The meaning of beauty has been debated by philosophers
since the time of the Greeks. Courted or scorned, distrusted, devalued, deconstructed, beauty promises pleasure while provoking awe, admiration and even fear. Beauty quickens the pulse.

Beauty stirs the understanding, and is the enemy of
complacency. Concepts alone can never replace it.
Beauty’s provocations are no longer innocent. Exuberant,
self-conscious and enigmatic, beauty will stage a stunning
comeback at OCCCA.
