There’s something about a glowing light -- be it neon, flame, or an electric flicker -- that makes us feel particularly connected to the holidays. Perhaps it’s because the bright glow is a symbol of hope, or maybe we just like the idea of illuminating the unknown future.
“Lighthouse” at the Alwun House explores the theme of illumination with artworks of all media, both functional and conceptual. Each of the pieces incorporate light, whether through lightboxes, lamps, art shrines, video, installation, neon, LED, or fire and will be placed throughout the house and gardens. Curated by artist and art lighting designer Landy Headley, the show invites you to come play in the glow.
The “Lighthouse” exhibit closes with the Lights-Out Artists Party on Friday, January 3. The free closing event takes place at 8 p.m. at the Alwun House Gallery and Gardens, 1204 East Roosevelt Street. For more information, visit www.alwunhouse.org or call 602-253-7887.
