Our lives are measured in seasons. Not just the familiar quarterly divisions of a year: spring, summer, fall, and winter, but with each new day we move among a variety of seasons. Some seasons have no set time of arrival; others are regular as the ticking of a clock. Some seasons we await with excitement or anticipation; others we fear or wish to slow their inevitable arrival.
This exhibition offers creative explorations about these passages through time, from the seasonal changes in the world around us to the personal transitions that are part of life’s journey.
