My Hero! celebrates and re-envisions the possibilities that exist when you are a superhero. With images that range from humorous to tragic, artists explore our fascination with iconic heroes and challenge the ways in which they are typically perceived. An impressive roster of more than 40 nationally and internationally known artists are presented in this exciting exhibition that was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA. www.bedfordgallery.org

Heroes Real & Imagined, an all-media juried exhibition that asks artists to consider the idea of a hero from any angle. Why do some people or the ideas they represent become heroic to individuals or communities? Submissions included representations of mythic heroes, cultural icons, personal mentors, and civic figures. “Responses to this call for entries varied widely – as we had hoped they would,” says Carnegie Director Lisa McDermott. “The result is highly personal to the artists but does speak volumes about what we prioritize in our heroes. Nearly all the works included in the exhibition represent good intentions and selfless behavior as the core values in heroism.”

The exhibition selection was juried by Flora Carter, Professor of Humanities at Modesto Junior College. Carter teaches several classes, including Introduction to Humanities, East Meets West, and Introduction to World Mythology. She was an Arts Program Coordinator at the Boulder Assembly of the Arts and Humanities in Colorado, and she was an Associate Curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.

Artists include: Leslee Adams (Modesto), Frank Ayala (Merced), Timothy Brown, Jr. (Turlock), Susan Conner (Altaville), Chloe Fonda (Oakdale), Harold George (Turlock), Magdalena Gonzales (Turlock), Don Hall (Turlock), Christine Harvey (Modesto), Tiffanie Heben (Tracy), Sue Jenkins (Scranton, PA), Judy Knott (Galt), Kathleen McLaughlin (La Mesa), Andrea Morris (Lodi), Geri Patterson-Kutras (Morgan Hill), Daniel Ryan (Columbia), Michael Souza (Turlock).

Sacred Space Audio Files

The photo-essay Sacred Spaces: Honoring the Final Journey by Merced photographer Roger Wyan. Working with Kathleen Stefani of Hinds Hospice in Merced, Roger photographed patients involved in hospice care during the final stages of their lives. The images are intimate and poignant; the stories and interviews recorded with the patients and their family members are life-affirming. Wyan states: “My hope is this project conveys that people are so much more than the final chapter in their lives. We are the summation of a life lived. Dying is just one part, albeit a major part, of our entire story.”  Each of the photographic stories is accompanied by excerpts from interviews with the patient or his/her family members. Several also have audio excerpts from the interviews available to stream from the Carnegie’s website while viewing the show. Wyan feels that listening the voices behind the images provides for the most complete and compelling experience.
