When viewing this piece, the focal point you are drawn to are the lilies. Eileen Whitaker, the artist, often used watercolors to express and evoke emotion, as she was well known for “painting with her heart”. Lilies are a symbol of humility and purity of the soul. As the artist was often moved by people and nature, she often spoke of letting the watercolors reveal how she felt as she went on painting.

Aurora showcases the never-ending, always-changing power of art and its ability to influence generations across time. The portraits in Aurora, by local photographers Ike and Tash, feature 19 young people from all over the South Sound. These portraits highlight youth as the subjects of remixed and reimagined versions of well-known works of art. The show empowers youth to see themselves in new ways and inspires young people to connect with works of art from other times and places.

Awakening. Genesis. Creation.
