In Darkness Blooms
May 1 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
This exhibit explores the transformative qualities of mental illness, grief, and sorrow, while simultaneously holding the tension of joy and delight.
A personal narrative on her fluctuating presence with depression, Abbie Preston Edmonson seeks to embody that which makes us human and the dance between holding on and letting go. Through the use of clay, charcoal, and found objects, each piece explores themes of melancholy, impermanence, fragility, and ultimately resurrection.
Inspired by the words of Wendell Berry, “To go in the dark with a light is to know the light. To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight, and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings…” This exhibit seeks to illuminate the journey into endarkenment while asking the viewer to re-examine the ways we avoid and dismiss the shadows of everyday life.
Opening Exhibition. COVID-19 protocols in place for this show.
