In the Realm of Innocents: An Exhibition of Mysticism and Lore

“Good Luck Painting” by Gina Litherland

January 30 – March 7, 2015
Open Reception: Friday, January 30, 5–9 pm.

Old stories live on through the retelling in each generation and are given new life from reinterpretation. We often learn about our own virtues through characters portrayed in folklore and fairy tales. In our exhibition In the Realm of Innocents we present six artists and their artwork that takes on classic iconography.

The exhibition is curated by Michael Flanagan and Kimberly Storage.
