The beauty of mythology by: Marissa Karulski 

As an artist I find inspiration from mythology, as it is my favorite history subject. I find it all to be interesting and beautiful. Thus is the reason why I chose this as my main subject for my gallery theme. I also decided to find works that use high contrast. I think high contrast pieces of art or more interesting and beautiful. This gallery contains works of art ranging from several mythologies such as Greek, Roman, and Norse. They works of arts are varied, there are paintings, sculpture, and pottery. 

It is a representation of the wife of the hero Jason. Medea is making a potion. The artwork has contrasting values of light and dark, and is from a mythological story, This is why I picked it.
This is a pottery piece that is depicting a man on a rock with plant life around him. The character is a god. The piece is highly contrasting because of the vase's natural color painted with black.
A woman is struggling with a dark being, a angel is helping her. In a story, she is a claimed beauty over the gods. Her skin is contrasting to the dark background and red cloth, reason for my choice.
