The Sun and The Moon Debuts at Wildwood

Monday, October 25, 2021

Sun and Moon“The Sun and The Moon” opens Oct. 25 in the third floor art gallery at St. Louis Community College at Wildwood, 2645 Generations Drive.

The exhibit features works created by Ivan Aka, Aleister Manah, Riushi Mazda and Metra Mitchell.

According to Mitchell, who also served as the curator of this exhibit, the works are connected by their unique use of light and dark.

“The sun and the moon represent the unity of opposites within a field of tension. Sunlight is the supreme cosmic power, providing energy needed for the day. Moonlight is the lamp on a dark night. The deeply personal energies of these luminaries may represent the seen and unseen parts of the psyche,” Mitchell explained.

“Symbolically, the light of the sun and the dark energy of the moon express outer and inner personalities. These Two Truths are the natural counterpart to each other. Joined as one, these celestial symbols represent the cycle of life, death and rebirth. The duality of light and dark are presented in this show through the mystical mediums of design, drawing and painting,” she said.

The community is invited to view the exhibit through Dec. 10 on campus or by exploring the College’s online art gallery.
