Pompeii Reimagined is a juried exhibition of artwork inspired by classical art with a contemporary spin. It is an artistic perspective that that expresses how antiquities continue to remain relevant in contemporary art. The artwork selected for this exhibition depict themes of ancient Rome, mythology, classical pottery, ancient architecture, volcanoes, antiquities, tragedy, and so much more!

Judges will select works of art that represent first, second, and third places. The winners will be awarded with prize money, courtesy of a grant fund provided by the Orlando Science Center and Orange County Government Department of Cultural Affairs.

Redefine Art Gallery: Future Nonexistent By J. Joshua Garrick
Named by Mayor Buddy Dyer as City of Orlando’s Ambassador to Greece and granted his very own day in the city (June 27), Garrick is the first living artist to present a major exhibition inside the National Archeological Museum in Athens, home to Greece’s largest collection of priceless antiquities. A fine art photographer, he specializes in capturing antiquities from uncommon angles and featuring sometimes-overlooked details. Garrick also had the opportunity to photograph the Pompeii: In the Shadow of the Volcano exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum, which was comprised of 250 pieces of art rescued from the volcanic ash of Mount Vesuvius’ eruption. This exhibition, at CityArts, features a sampling of his Pompeii antiquities photography. Garrick invites viewers to enjoy these magical images, as they all tell their own individual stories.

Young Artists Gallery: Ancient Techniques: Pompeii Inspired
Artists in high school and college exhibit artwork inspired by ancient techniques from art history. Curated by Jean-Claude Rasch, this exhibition features 2D, low relief, and ceramics.

Spotlight Gallery: ex ante // ex post By Richard Munster
The selected works in this exhibition function as objects and images intended to highlight, document and elevate the residue of their transformation through fire, pressure & heat. The marks, colors, crevasses and cracks trace & tell, acting as a physical record of change through an extreme event. In the case of my work that event is the firing process: physically akin to the effects of an eruption but exercised with creative intention and care.

The title of this body of work, ex ante // ex post, translates from Latin as Before the Event // After the Event. Much of the interest in the city of Pompeii is directly linked to its violent destruction at the hands of mount Vesuvius. As a result of this fascinating tragedy, history turned its eyes to the aftermath of the event and drew a vibrant image of the life, landscape and culture of both the island and its inhabitants at the time.
