The first Thursday of the month is a traditional time for gallery show openings. While considering this date for our exhibition, our internationally-diverse group of artists began to discuss the symbolic representations across cultures for the days of the week. In the Asian culture, Thursdays are represented by the symbol of a tree. In Western culture, the tree is a symbol for knowledge. We all agreed that as art students, we are in pursuit of knowledge. Then the discussion got less intense, and we agreed to call this show Thirst Fursdays!
