Inside the Ancestral Current
Open Exhibit at SLCArts Gallery at Town Hall
April 19 – May 26, 2017
Open during Town Hall hours
Monday-Friday 9 am-4 pm
Description: The paintings in this exhibit are designed as a way of not forgetting the mechanisms of memory. They depict a particle of time, the birth of an idea, a color, a form, a texture, something’s size. The imprint that remains resembles photographs of pigments removed from the brain at the moment of their creation. The paintings also recall the Amerindian practice of making codexes and petroglyphs to conserve the yearly cycles of indigenous communities and to render homage to their gods.
Calderon’s art will be on display at the SLC Arts Gallery at the Potsdam Town Hall, 18 Elm Street, through May 26, 2017. The exhibit and opening are free and open to the public, and wheelchair accessible. The Gallery is open during Town Hall business hours, Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
