Midwinter: Embrace The Darkness

Exhibition Dates:  January 24, 2011 - March 2, 2011

Reception:  January 27, 2011, 5-8pm

Midwinter is the day on the calendar when there is the least amount of
daylight and the longest period of night. It is on this day when the balance
between light and dark swings decidedly in favor of the dark. Inspired by
this time of year the group exhibition MIDWINTER: Embrace The Darkness
will highlight the work of artists who pull from the notion of darkness, not
only in its absence of light, but in its references to that which is invisible,
unknowable or ignored.

MIDWINTER reminds that we should not only celebrate what is made obvious
by daylight, but also value the richness of the unknown and overlooked.

Artists: Dana Carter, Joy Feasley, Roxane Hopper, Irena Knezevic, Isaac
Resnikoff, Michael Robinson, Paul Swenbeck, and Craig Yu
