Imagination is the Only Weapon

Contemporary Art Month
Four young artists, Walden Booker, Faith Fisher, Tirzah Lawson and Leroy Winter come together to display their most recent work in an art exhibit during San Antonio’s yearly Contemporary Art Month (CAM) opening March 18th at the Leal Art Gallery titled “Imagination is the Only Weapon (in the war against reality)” curated by Kimberly Garza. In this exhibit, the talented young artists negotiate between the formal academic structure they have experienced the past four years and the inevitable shift as they transition from Senior’s at the North East School of the Arts (NESA), a competitive Fine Arts magnet program, to their post graduation educational goals. The work covers a range of interpretations of traditional/non-traditional portraits and still lifes that engage the viewer on a creative journey through the visual language of a generation of artists confronted with inevitable growing pains that segue into adulthood. “Imagination is the Only Weapon (in the war against reality)” is a quote from Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland that illustrates a common thread woven in the work of these four artists. Although the styles vary, the dedication to the development of their skills combined with a creative innate talent is a testament to the power of the imagination and the exploration of art in a contemporary and sometimes skewed social reality.
