A SIMPLER TIME
OPENING: APRIL 30 | 6 PM TO 9 PM CLOSING: MAY 21
Nostalgia is a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. The word nostalgia is a learned formation of a Greek compound, consisting of nóstos, meaning "homecoming", and a Homeric word, álgos, meaning "pain, ache." Nostalgia can refer to a general interest in the past, personalities and events, and the "good old days.”
Nostalgia is triggered by something reminding an individual of an event or item from their past, conjuring emotions that vary from happiness to sorrow. The term "feeling nostalgic" is more commonly used to describe pleasurable emotions associated with and/or a longing to go back to a particular period of time.
Pieces created for this show invoke a sense of happiness or longing, with some including nostalgic materials. A variety of media are represented.
