Works by Various Artists
May 7 – August 30, 2014
June 14th, 2014, 2 – 4PM
What happens when you have a world wide call for art about pain? The world responds.
The pain of loneliness. The pain of post-traumatic stress. The pain of spinal stenosis, of uterine fibroids. How to explain one’s pain to another person, to make it real for someone else? By drawing it.
We have asked artist from all over the world to mail in some images of their pain experiences. All we asked is that the image arrive through the mail and illustrate some type of pain. They might not all seem painful to the viewer, but they do to the artist.
Art arrived from Asia, Europe, South America, as well as all over the USA and Canada.
