On View: January 27th - March 17th

What We Don’t Realize When We See Things is a group exhibition composed of painting, drawing, video, sculpture, and performance that addresses everyday life that shapes who we are and how we relate to others. The participating artists tell stories about how we live, grow, intersect and connect, in a direct and visceral way. Vulnerability allows us to see beyond political divides and connect to another human being. There is an immediacy and a confrontation that is at the heart of this exhibition, one that seeks to foster communication and ultimately create a space of trust and compassion.
