On Thursday, the Elora Centre for the Arts will host the opening reception of Dream.
Twenty area artists have produced works based on dreams for the exhibition opening in the Minarovich Gallery.
Accompanying the show is an original sound piece composed by Guelph musician Jeff Bird.
Exhibition organizer Marilyn Koop believes it is possible artists have less clearly defined boundaries that separate reality from the subconscious.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the symbolists and the expressionists (two notables are William Blake and Salvador Dali) introduced dream imagery to the art world.
Koop finds dreams “really fascinating, and I think other people do too. Dreams make wonderful subjects for art because they are mysterious, unexplainable, and visually astounding.”
The evening opens in the Minarovich Gallery at 7:30pm.
Many of the artists will be in attendance that night.
