The following is a press release issued by the Deep Valley Arts Collective:
The Deep Valley Arts Collective invites you to an upcoming community art exhibition: Memento Mori at MEDIUM Art Gallery in Ukiah.
You are invited to attend the juried group exhibition “Memento Mori,” which in Latin means to “remember that you must die.” We seek to explore the inevitability of death and its impact on all of us. During the pandemic, we’ve had to let go of old ways of thinking and being in the world and adopt new ways of living. Death, in all its forms, can provide an opportunity to adapt, appreciate, honor and value the lives we are currently living. Remembering that we all will die one day allows us to be present in the world and more present in our lives. Death reminds us that each moment of life is sacred.
The exhibition will be on display during the months of October and November.

Memento or Momento. Which is it?
HOGWASH!!! I will NOT erect an altar to the dead. I will remember my deceased loved ones, but I will not build an altar for them. Altars are made for worship. I will worship the a lord my God and Him only will I serve!
