Student Exhibit 2016: Between Dream and Reality

May 16, 2016 – September 4, 2016

The Dalí seeks to make a difference in the community by recognizing the role our art teachers play in their students’ development, and by encouraging students to continue exploring new ideas and creative thinking in all fields of education. In The Dalí’s Student Surrealist Art Exhibits, students explore a variety of media such as drawing, collage, watercolor, acrylic, digital photography and mixed media.

This year’s theme: “Between Dream and Reality”
The Surrealists lived within two worlds: the real and the dream, the conscious and the subconscious, the rational and the fantastical. With this year’s exhibit, we invite the students to create their own “surreality” by employing one or more of the following techniques:

Dislocation: Familiar objects are placed in an odd, bizarre, humorous, or unusual setting.

Juxtaposition: Two or more unrelated images are placed side by side; creating unexpected object combinations.

Transformation/Metamorphosis: Familiar images are changed in form, appearance, nature, condition, character or function to become unusual or strange.
