    Warnborough College's Third Annual Internation Conference on the Arts (WCCA 2015) will take place from the evening of 14 July through 17 July 2015. This year's conference theme is 'Art as Illusion'.

    'Illusion' is typically defined as something negative - something that deceives us by producing a flase or misleading impresson of reality. But what is reality? Isn't it shaped by our perceptions? Isn't whatever control we think we have or reality itself illusory? A rainbow is an opitcal illusion. It doesn't have an actual endpoint. Does that mean it isn't real? Art throughout history has reflected and defined cultures, ideas, beliefs i.e. realities. A two dimensional painting can evoke a three dimensionalfeel. Simple lines can create depth and distance.

    The ability to manipulate impressions, emotions and perceptions successfully (and for a sustained period) can also be considered an 'art'. Art has been known to elicit feelings of joy, sadness, anger and other things.

    At WCCA 2015, we'll address the theme of 'Art as Illusion' and also 'Illusion as Art' in tangible and abstract ways. Join us to explore where illusion and reality converge in the arts.
