From the Garden, From the Grave

Opening: Thursday, Aug 29, 2024 4 – 7 pm

Featuring work from Kelly Jean Conroy, Carin Jones and Meghan Schmeidel, this exhibition addresses the dichotomy of life and death.

Can death be beautiful? Challenging the notion that death can only be melancholy and not something exquisite, the work in this show will include imagery of plant life and animals in all stages. On one hand, we have blossoming flowers, birds flying and lively insects. And on the other, we have the macabre, with imagery that confronts death. The aim is to illustrate how multi-faceted death is. It can be poetic, even sublime, and at the very same time, bleak and depressing. 

We are hosting a celebration for our Fall 2024 exhibition From the Garden, From the Grave! Enjoy a glass of wine and charcuterie while admiring the work by Kelly Jean Conroy, Carin Jones and Meghan Schmeidel.
