The theme of this exhibit, Like a Doris Day movie from the late 1950s or an easy listening song from the 70s, looks at love in our contemporary society. We ask artists and viewers to consider modern love and relationships, and the cultural and commercial expressions that result. The clash of beauty and kitsch, the items we buy to give our partner (both natural and manufactured), the images that represent love in films, cartoons, commercials and on greeting cards, the purchases that result- weddings honeymoons, houses, condos, - all can be topics for artistic investigation.
