Seeing in the Dark

Seeing In the Dark curated by pastel artist and arts organizer Laurel Guy. NIGHT…dreams, sleep, fear, the night sky, the planets, the moon, the stars, light and possibilities… This exhibit features the work of artists inspired by the night and exploring contrasts between light and darkness. Vincent Van Gogh thought “the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day” and as Goethe said “Rapturous is the night.”

The opening reception for this exhibit is being held in conjunction with the Light in Winter Festival from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on Friday January 23.  The exhibit will be on display through the end of March.
