Carnegie Arts Center - Turlock
The Contemporary Humanitarian Artists Association (CHAA) is a group of artists who believe that every human being has an effect on our world.
The artists in this group come together with a joint philosophy, that everyone’s decisions and behaviors either advance society or contribute to its decline. The luxury of being “neutral” is non-existent. These artists create in order to provide others a small escape from their world and to give them a glimpse into the soul of another human being, if only for a fleeting moment. Seeing our world from many perspectives reminds us that one of the most important purposes in life is to help each other while being the best possible stewards of our planet.
The members of CHAA have originated from many locations and have momentarily converged in the center of the San Joaquin Valley. The members meet regularly to discuss art philosophies, to share art techniques, to critique each others' work, and to support each other in their journey to create.
The collective has set a theme for this exhibition that each artist responded to with his or her own unique interpretation. The Rebirth of the Muse encourages the artist to explore what inspires them and express those inspirations in works both old and new.
