CALL FOR ARTISTS: Worlds Within Shadows: Curated by GRETCHEN HEINEL

Humans fear the dark. We’re warned of horrors which lurk in the shadows: demons and witches, hysteria and madness… Consequently, we’re so preoccupied with light that we never learn to cope with darkness. We deny one half of our nature in pursuit of the other. What truths might we uncover if we were willing to dance with our demons?
