Of all the feelings we live for, joy is the summation of everything we want, enjoy, and are enraptured by. It gives us an oasis when life feels like a desert. It gives us shelter when storms ravish us. It gives us shade when the fires of stress and pressures scorch our skin. It is this feeling of great pleasure and happiness that makes the hard times worth surviving.
This exhibition - Joy: An Art Exhibition Celebrating Life - showcases expressions of this sometimes elusive emotion. It allows artists to uncover their experiences and longings for joy throughout their lives. It is a celebration of the things that make us happy and the unrelenting desire to experience those things.
"I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains." - Anne Frank
