PORTALS is an interactive, organically evolving installation at Tennessee Valley Museum of Art. Doors can represent entrances, beginnings, transitions, gateways, thresholds, boundaries, or endings. Tennessee Valley Art Association member artists are invited to interpret these neutral doors (portals) as works of art.
Artists can bring materials into the museum and paint, puncture, staple, découpage, etc. to their hearts’ content. The exhibition will evolve through June 30. Each door will be auctioned off at the annual artist members exhibition, ARTWORKS, at the end of Summer.

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
– Clarissa Pinkola Estes (Women Who Run with the Wolves)
