GALLERY HOURSMonday - Friday between 12:00 and 4:00 pm from September 12 – November 10, 2022 (closed September 30 and October 10).

This art exhibit explores how worry about climate change and ecological collapse seeps into our lives and dreams, mixing with other fears and anxieties, and entangling with personal experiences of loss. In this ecosystem of grief, art is a place for picturing and shaping bad feelings, including bad feelings about the very act of making art. Each gesture of making is weighed against the desire to do no harm—and the impossibility of a harmless human life within the context of our extractive capitalist system. We grieve our own existence, as well as our eventual demise.
