Local Show Invites Artists Over Forty Worldwide

Top Quote Challenging the myth that cutting edge art is created only by young artists, a local art group - The Haggus Society -- is mounting its first show created by older artists, some from beyond U.S. borders. The three-day show, opening in early October, will be held at Cathi Milligan's Glass Studio on York Boulevard near Avenue 50 in Highland Park. End Quote
  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) August 24, 2011 - In this youth oriented society, the conventional wisdom is that the younger artist is the risk taker and rule breaker. While those who would follow conventional wisdom believe we soften as we get older, there are those who actually hone their edges to craft a message with more bite and risk because of their station in life.

    Haggus Society cofounder, Terri Lloyd states, "This isn't necessarily the case. As I see it, the older artist actually has the courage, or lack of filters, to process and explore dangerous ideas. Perhaps this is why there isn't the same support for the older artist, dangerous ideas. Which is exactly why we should be recognized and supported."

    The show runs from Friday October 7 through October 9 with a silent auction and reception on Saturday October 8.
