The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art presents More Than Dreams: Exploring the Surreal in Art, a group exhibition on view in the Main Galleries from September 24 – December 18, 2022. Surrealism was a cultural movement in the early 20th century known for mixing fantasy and dreams with reality. Surrealist art and literature over the past century have explored distant, obscured, or tainted realities, endeavoring to reach into and uncover the unconscious parts of the mind through creative expression.
In this group exhibition of six artists, MCMA explores the use of surreal imagery and processes with a selection of paintings. This exhibition will allow guests the opportunity to examine how and why artists have continued, even to this day, to create representations of distorted realities that can be seen as bizarrely whimsical, but also eerily bleak.
Featuring artwork by Bronislaw Bak, Alexander Berdysheff, Gary Chapman, Larkin Ford, Vladimir Kush, and Carlos Solis.
