“We Carry the Fire: Kevin King and Frances Johnson”
September 30 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Painter Kevin King and ceramicist Frances Johnson, of Falmouth, have lived and created art together for 39 years. The “We” in the title of this exhibition refers to “the builders of culture: the artists, musicians, writers, and painters of our time,” and the “fire” is “the passion and dedication that artists commit to their work and their lives,” said King.
The statement is taken from Cormac McCarthy’s novel, “The Road,” in which a father and son are walking through a post-apocalyptic land, trying to reach the coast and some form of civilization while eluding the dredges of mankind, who have taken to hunting and eating whatever and whomever they capture. The father tells his son that they carry the fire. Although he does not explicitly explain what he means, “you know by the father’s sense of character, that they are carrying all that is good and what can be saved of the advancement of human endeavor,” said King.
“As a culture we are a work in progress, ever evolving and redefining the human potential.”
