This whimsical feature exhibition explores the beauty and wonder, and sometimes darker side, of modern fairy tales. Along with paintings, prints, video, a life-size fort, and a poetry tree, Casey Riordan Millard's Shark Girl series will catapult viewers into the life of a bizarre half-shark, half-girl's imaginary world. Bittersweet Observations also features local artists Jeremy Klonicki, Jenny Mathews, and Sarah Reed-McNamara. Exhibition begins June 9 with a free public opening.
