A Time to Dance
Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Marti Griffin

: Wed, Sep 23, 5pm - 7pm

Inspiration for the title of this dual exhibit comes from a classic and widely quoted passage.

"…A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..." - Ecclesiastes 3:1.

What better way to depict certain aspects of life? People or places... doesn't seem to make any difference. It is all a matter of time. We become, have our time, then we are gone. One side of the gallery shows Backstreet, a former Atlanta nightspot, while the other side highlights some of my favorite funerary art images that have attracted my eye during brief travels. The nightclub Backstreet took on a life of its own and what an exciting life it was! Open twenty-four hours seven days a week for almost thirty years, there was never a dull moment. It was a place where much laughing and dancing was enjoyed by all its many patrons! Funerary art, on the other side, is a passion of mine. Cemeteries fascinate me with all the magnificent art, each piece created to honor someone. Of course, they are renowned places of weeping and mourning. After all, it is the final dance.
