‘Fistfuls of Sky’ Exhibition – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Fistfuls of Sky, which opens on at 7pm BST on 7th June and will run until 28th June. The exhibition features over 40 incredible international artists and consists of more than 50 new artworks.

Throughout history, the sky and it’s vast, rolling, endless wonder has been consistently looked to for inspiration and answers. Within art, it has appeared in many forms and contexts and has been imbued with a rich tapestry of symbolism. And while this exhibition (like all our exhibitions), is completely un-themed, for the show title we wished to borrow from one such symbolic gem involving the wild blue yonder and give a nod to the limitless potential of creativity and the imagination. The sky’s unbounded, fleeting, and intangible qualities provide the perfect metaphor for the thoughts and dreams that lie at the heart of the creative process and the seeds of our imaginations. During the act of creation, artists must reach out and grab hold of the ephemeral… they must raise up their hands and seize those ‘Fistfuls of Sky’.
