ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Alchemists were notorious for attempting to make synthetic gold, but their goals were far more ambitious: to transform and bend nature to the will of human imagination. “The aim of alchemy, to both imitate nature and transcend it, lies at the heart of artistic practices. Creativity itself can be said to describe a process of going beyond mere imitation—to create a new reality.” – Nora Landes. The Arts Guild of Sonoma invites artists to express their dreams, desires, mysteries, symbols, creativity and enlightenment in ALCHEMY, our third annual National Juried Exhibition.
