First I Was Afraid...
Sep 17-Nov 19
First I Was Afraid...began in recognition of the fact that unease and instability are on the rise around the globe. Those words are descriptors of abstract political or social conditions. What was more interesting to me was the personal reaction of individual people to those conditions. The artists of the present show are all deeply concerned with precisely that issue--broadly speaking, they are focused on personal responses to a variety of public and private anxieties and fears. Artists: Amy Archambault, Ingrid Burrington, Molly Dilworth, Sandra Erbacher, Will Gill, Susanna Hertrich, Damien Hoar de Galvan, Steve Locke, Nicole Maloof, Lauren McCarthy, Tabitha Soren. Curator: Liz Blum.
