The Giving (2002)

The Community College of Rhode Island Arts and Humanities Series Presents Helena Stockar's The Epos of Life October 4-23, 2004 at the Art Gallery on Flanagan Campus.

Working for more than fifty years as an artist, Helena Stockar in the last two years has composed a series of oils on canvas that summarize her life experiences. Each piece addresses in a special way her understanding of the basic forces which formed and form her life as well as that of others. With her vivid colors, experienced brush stroke and mature compositions, Mrs. Stockar deals with many themes, among them home, war, aging, motherhood, achievement. In this ongoing project, she will include these as well as other themes "as long as [her] inspiration permits." Additional programs, Our Universe, What Next? and The World We Did Not Know About are also being developed.

This exhibit is the first to bring the Epos of Life to the general public. The individual canvases are not for sale. However, the prospective collector may purchase copies that are in a low numbered series and signed.

Helena Stockar, a prominent member of the Rhode Island arts community since the fifties, attended the School of Design in Prague and received a degree in graphic design. She lives in Shannock, has exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally, her works being found in many major collections here and abroad.
