There is a common tendency among artists to return to certain subjects again and again, even as their artistic approaches change and develop over time. These subjects, or “themes” can be figures either real or symbolic, or visual ideas having to do with color, texture, line, or form. This exhibit prompts us to ask:  Why do artists keep returning to these ideas as if there is something they haven’t completely worked out for themselves? What do they see in our world that we might be missing?  

We hope this exhibition will open our eyes to a few of the infinite ‘variations’ of the abundantly diverse elements of the divinely created world we share.
