The White Season - alternative view

The opening reception of THE WHITE SEASON at the Durango Arts Center was truly a celebration of winter with very cold temperatures and very icy roads after a few days of snow.  The approach to the entry doors was lite with little snowball sculptures and the lobby was dimly lit with candles and icicles in snow. The overall effect of the varied media of the show's artists, white on white, varied shades of white, blues and black was ethereal and meditative.  Test on three walls spelled out poetry that spoke of winter. A great crowd showed up which was quite amazing considering the weather.
