What’s love got to do with it?

North Coast Artists Guild in a special showing of Mixed Media.

Love in all its various forms is undoubtedly the most driving force in human behavior. And Love is one of the most common themes in the creative arts – countless poems, operas, songs, sculptures, paintings, have been created throughout human history in every era and culture.

The focus of this show is to present artists’ interpretations of what Love is to them in whatever way individual artists wishes to approach it: personally, emotionally, intellectually, religiously, figuratively, conceptually, literally, abstractly, subconsciously, comically, tragically, satirically or even absurdly.

The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA, is open weekdays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m., and serves the coastal communities of Northern Sonoma & Southern Mendocino Counties.
