"From the Ashes"
House of Iconoclasts Art Collective
Marlene and Spencer Hays Foundation Gallery
December 18, 2020-January 16, 2021
House of Iconoclasts, like many of us this year, have felt the stressors of 2020. So when thinking of what to show during the Collective Takeover exhibit at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center we wanted to create something that expressed both the atrocities and the hope of this year. We felt "From the Ashes" and the symbolism of the Phoenix summed this up beautifully.
Cities, relationships, and communities were ablaze with fear, anger, and confusion with much to be upset about. It has been and continues to be a frightening and trying time. On the horizon, there is a glimmer of hope for healing the mind, body, and spirit. Let's all rise up from the ashes of what has transpired in 2020 to soar towards a renewed existence.
