Art Exhibition: Joy: For the Joy of It

Daily from Jul 9 – Aug 9. 11am to 4pm. Five artists (Greta Guzek, Motoko, Jen Drysdale, Kirsten Guzek and Josefa Fritz Barham) explore the theme of Joy. “In the muddy waters of humanity, the arts often choose to express sorrow over joy, disaster over achievement, malice over goodwill. Though opposites amplify each other, we wonder if it is harder to find symbols or marks of joy. We have hope that at the core, whether quiet or radiant, life and every expression of it, is joyful; and during these Covid times staying in touch with our positive energies is imperative!”
