Our latest visual art exhibit “Beyond Darkness and Light” illuminates the beautifully stained parts of the human condition. We are thrilled to have the artwork of Sonya Genel and Sallie Smith to guide us on this exploration. In addition,this month’s window installation features work by the talented, Poetry Store Poet, Silvi Alcivar. Sallie Smith provides raw and often foreboding photography that portrays the loss of self and ensuing anxieties in a post-mythological age. Smith’s bold images of contemporary fragmented individuals are complimented by the powerful and emotive paintings, drawings and prints of Sonya Genel. Showing struggle and process, Genel’s contorted and engulfed figures give light to the existence of the psychologically tormented.”
