Inner Eye 3 copy 2.jpg

This exhibition, curated by Susan Sensemann, investigates dream and reality in biology, in a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, sculptural installation, and fiber art. Artists in this exhibition evoke the Enlightenment-era identity of mystical and medical discovery; their works look inside the human body in the hope of reconciling the quickly evolving world of clinical science with the un-mined depths of the psychic, the dreamlike, and the imaginary.
