Curated by Risa Shoup, Art & Lies features a diverse collection of work focusing on issues that have figured prominently in her life: gender, environment, time, alienation and isolation.  Shoup hopes to provoke the audience to consider the creative role of the curator when viewing work that responds to themes that have been so crucial in the shaping of her life’s trajectory.

The group show features installations, photography, sculpture, video, and collage by six artists: Ryan Frank, R. Justin Stewart, Danielle Durchslag, Samantha Vernon, Morgan Levy, and Kerry Downey. more info here
