The Adam Lister Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of "Unforgettable". This is a group exhibition featuring artwork that addresses ideas and concepts that have to do with time. As a practical matter, clocks and calendars regulate everyday life. Yet at the most primitive level, human awareness of time is simply the ability to distinguish which of any two events is earlier and which is later. We live in a reality that is dependent on measurements. Across all aspects of life, we measure quantities, weights, speeds, temperatures, sounds and times, constantly comparing one thing to another.

The concept of time can be discussed on several different levels: physical, psychological, philosophical, scientific, and biological. Every moment there has ever been and ever will be, every object, every thought and feeling, and every action and reaction all make up our own individual perceptions of time. The way the same subway ride can feel like no time at all one day, and seem to take forever another day, the speed of time is due to our reading of a sequence of events. The artwork in "Unforgettable", deals with natural human obsessions surrounding life, death, age, memory, structure, order, and freedom.

Artists: Diana Adams, John M. Adams, Susan Brown, Deborah Burdin, Sarah Burton, Donna Glubo Schwartz, Landon Jones, Adam Lister, Robbie Namy, Stephanie Rivers, Jamin Sheard, Chris Wise
