It takes a good, healthy dose of will and dedication for one to slow the pace of our feverishly spinning world and take notice of what is really important. It also takes a good solid heap of introspective creativity to transform those things deemed significant into a tangible manifestation that can inspire others to also apply the brakes and realize just how much we render to the trivial and take the treasures for granted.
Through subtle nuisances, vivid revelation and colorful clarity, that message is celebrated in the collaboration of three local artists who have joined forces to present "Three Artists — One World," the newly opened exhibit at the Burbank Creative Arts Center.
The featured trio of Toni Scott, John Paul Thornton and Charlie Morey mingled with fellow artists, students, mentors, family members, friends and supporters of the visual arts during the exhibit's opening-night reception on Friday.
Using a diverse range of media from sculpture and oils to acrylics and photography, the show blends gentle strength and unrepentant boldness as each artist reveals personal discoveries of the treasures to be found in today's world.
