Somewhere In The Dark At Art7

September 4th, 2016

Somewhere In The Dark At Art7

Join us for Fall Gallery Night on Saturday, September 10th from 6-9pm.

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.” — Helen Keller

ART7 Community Gallery will present Somewhere in the Dark, an exploration of the other side of the light by 34 artists. Artworks in this exhibit may feature somber tones and monochromatic hues with moments of vibrancy amongst the colors of night. The participating works create a serene space; an artistic cathedral where viewers can consider the shadows in their own lives and the dual nature of the absence of light: the calm of darkness as well as its gravity.
