About the Exhibition:
The Latin root for mica, a shimmering mineral originally used as a “glittering” agent in art, cosmetics,
and decorations in ancient times, means “a crumb”. True, a property of mica is that the mineral flakes
into little crumbs quite easily, but its reflective property is what the human eye finds most attractive.
Now we use a variety of glittering agents to accent our bodies, clothing, crafts, cars...nearly any surface
that can be pigmented. Glittering is bright, bold, and fun. Glitter evokes a sense of nostalgia, draws
attention to ideas of value, creates a sense of attraction, wonder and beauty. Through out a month long
exhibition, we seek to celebrate these reflections of light through art. We seek to celebrate works of art
that fulfill our innate desire to see, contain, possess and manipulate light.
