EUREKA- “ Man, Woman and Mythology,” a collection
of mixed-media paintings by Monjett Graham, is on exhibit
through Aug. 28 at the Gallery Dog, 321 Third St.
An Arts Alive opening reception will be held from 6
to 9 p.m. Saturday.
The exhibition is a combination of ancient Greek mythology
and everyday life.
“Done in my usual mixed-media collage technique,
I have attempted to portray current issues in mythological
terms,” Graham said. “These portrayals are
not intended as flat statements, but as an inquiry into
Graham’s primary reference has been 19th century
scholar Thomas Bulfinch.
“Bulfinch’s mythology differs from a lot
of other writings on that subject in that there is more
ruthless detail and less sugar-coating of the tales
than in other versions. I have chosen ancient Greek
mythology over other possible choices because it is
so well known within the parameters of western culture,”
“Most people who have had any schooling at all
in the United States have some notion of the deities
and stories from Greek mythology.
