Alexi Era Gallery (Mascoutah) – “Bestowed Upon Us”. Have you ever wanted so badly to give a gift? There are so many gifts we can give from material items, to items unable to be seen but only felt. Such things like the gift of hope, peace, or unwavering faith. Maybe we are able to lend a hand to encourage a person’s dream realized or undying passion that becomes reality. Maybe this gift is an item so sacred and special it contains soul particles. Overall, this exhibition embraces artwork that visually expresses the idea of bestowing gifts unto others and how life changing it can be.
