"From Ashes to Art: Artists Hold the Key"
2001-11-29 until 2001-12-02
Fort Mason Center Firehouse
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

Ashes to Art, created to showcase art that honors life, is the first international juried exhibition of urns, vessels and reliquaries for keeping or dispersing funerary ashes. The three day exhibition at the Fort Mason Center Firehouse in San Francisco, CA, features 100 works of fine art and fine craft from 80 artists representing 28 states and 8 countries. Ashes to Art opens November 29 with a preview reception from 6-9pm, and continues through December 2, 2001. Exhibition hours are 10am-6pm, Friday through Sunday. Fort Mason Center is easily accessible by public and private transportation.

The 100+ selected works encompass as broad a range of styles and sculptural forms as contemporary culture embodies itself—in fine and forged metals, clay and rammed earth, blown and cast glass, paper, wood, and twine. “Each of the artworks being featured in Ashes to Art reflects who we are, or someone we know, and how we want to be remembered,” according to Maureen Lomasney, the event’s Design Director. It’s art that can stand in for us and those we love—exuberantly, elegantly, quietly, whimsically, personally.”

In honoring life through art, while creating a unique platform for artists with the goal of assuaging sorrow and fear of death, Ashes to Art also presents an intriguing opportunity to collectors and the general public to see new concepts and forms of functional funerary sculpture and fine craft that have never been assembled before for exhibition and sale.

Ashes to Art is presented by Funeria (hppt://www.funeria.com)—an outgrowth of an independent publishing venture, Tannery Creek Press, founded in 1992 to help individuals find the means to honor their life experiences in writing.
