SUPERSTITION
Curated by Jefferson Pinder

May 20 – June 19

Art and superstition are both forms of secular spirituality that ambitiously seek to define fate and environment. Often associated with fear and ignorance, superstitious is a term that society has used to label folks who choose their own paths and their own sets of beliefs. Bad luck and good fortune are often connected to a whole series of actions that ultimately are determined by the rationale of the subscriber. In this delicate existence, a broken mirror could curse an individual for years or an umbrella opened indoors could spell uncertain doom. Similarly, artists often forge unique paths while abiding by a personal sense of truth and spirit. In creating myth and illusion, artists weave enigmatic “real world” elements into objects that become personal relics and icons.
