Not a Story to Pass On
Jennifer Davis Carey and Scarlett Hoey work at the intersection of art and history. The double meaning of the title of this exhibition “Not a Story to Pass On,” is essential to understanding the work of each artist, which includes collage, enamel work, and photography. Carey and Hoey each tell a story with their work, one that is too important to miss, and at the same time it is not a story to carry through history—one that must be understood but not repeated. This exhibition confronts history, giving voice to stories that have been misinterpreted, hidden, or ignored. It is also about the role of vision in history—who do we see, and how do we see them? Who has been allowed to be seen throughout history and who has been silenced?
Join us for a reception celebrating the exhibition Saturday, February 24, 6:00-8:00!
