Opening Reception: Friday, May 18 from 7pm to 9pm

From the beginning of time, humankind has created symbols and stories to both explain the world around us, and to give life to the landscapes of our dreams and imaginings. From Jung’s archetypes, to ancient gods and goddesses, fantastical creatures and places that exist only in the mind’s eye, artists, using varied media, explore the realms of dreams, fantasy and mythology. Exhibited works play with boundaries of reality and express visions and mysteries that lie within and beyond us all.
