> DESCRIPTION

Midwinter is the day on the calendar when there is the least amount of daylight and the longest period of night. It is on this day when the balance between light and dark swings decidedly in favor of night. Inspired by this time of year the group exhibition MIDWINTER: Embrace The Darkness will highlight the work of artists who pull from darkness not only in the literal sense, but also darkness in the sense of what is out of sight, unknown, unknowable or overlooked.

With this in mind the work in MIDWINTER ranges from the investigation of the delicate beauty of ice forming on a windshield in the middle of the night to the haunting landscapes of abandoned Worlds Fair Grounds and the exploration of unsanctioned religious practices.

The work in MIDWINTER reminds us that we should not only celebrate what is made obvious by daylight, but also value the richness of the unknown and overlooked.
