Nostalgia from 'Now & Then' at Falls Church Arts

See also

With Theresa Stifel curating the exhibit, one might expect a good dose of nostalgia, and sure enough she doesn’t disappoint. The exhibit is “Now & Then,” which is left to the interpretation of participating artists as reported in other stories. Here are examples that connote the feeling without knowing the details. Art is expressive in that manner. Artists are able to communicate without a lot of words. Surely, the additional words in artists’ statements can be enriching, but let the art do the talking s’il vous plait.

How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't.
