A BEAUTIFUL DREAM, an exhibition curated by Adrienne Sweetman in collaboration with Project Gallery. The opening reception will be held on the evening of Thursday November 21st from 7-11pm. This exhibition will showcase works aiming to portray utopic visions, landscapes, and subject matter. Works that express or explore the innocence, perfection and beauty of a child’s imaginative perspectives, observations and hopes for the world – full of creativity, innocence, adventure, and optimism. Proceeds from the exhibition will go to the Olive Branch for Children, an organization that aims to provide sustenance and aid to orphans and vulnerable children in Tanzania.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Since Sir Thomas More coined the term in the 16th century, countless artists and thinkers have dreamt up their own version of Utopia. However, imagining the perfect world is not the sole purvey of philosophers and esotericists. Artists, entrepreneurs and international agencies all use visions of a better society, a better world, to bring their ideas to life.
