April 8th – May 3rd

Opening Reception:
Friday, April 8th at 8 pm
Live music by Jason Poisson at 8.30 pm

“Whether it is someone I know, sleeping in front of me or a stranger before me on the train, I sometimes see characters I feel the urge to capture.” – Naz Rahbar

This exhibition is a collection of visual documentations of human and animal personalities that together illustrate the journey we undertake to discover ourselves. These artists contextualize both real and imagined personalities within identities of other species, reactions to environmental factors, archetypal narratives, and surrounding landscapes. Just like how we attain meaning through establishing context, the works of these artists seek meaning in personal identity in their relation to outside factors.
