Opening Reception for Art Exhibit, We Grow Accustomed to the Dark

Art Exhibition at Herter Art Gallery for 6th Annual Amherst Poetry Festival. Exhibition open till September 23rd, 2018

We Grow Accustomed to the Dark is an exhibition which investigates the role of identity in the current political climate by probing the connection between poetry and visual art. 11 visual artists and 4 poets come together as part of the 6th Annual Amherst Poetry Festival and use a variety of approaches to address the complexities of identity politics, class, gender, education, and industrialization. Their work, which is deeply rooted in personal experiences, becomes a gateway by which the viewer can explore these issues.
