A Live Virtual Exhibit
An Exploration of Contrast:
The Unifying Principle
This is a live, on-going exhibit. Participation is open to all FAA members. New works added weekly.
July 1, 2020 – Inspired by a FAA member, the endeavor of this virtual exhibit is to contemplate life in all its differences and all its fundamental unity, and to transmit those thoughts and feelings to the observer. The desired end result is a positive statement of the value and inherent beauty in differences. We seek to provide an avenue for artistic voicing and for growth into a kinder, more deliberately compassionate community.
We welcome you to enjoy An Exploration of Contrast: The Unifying Principle.
