Folktales

APRIL 7-28, 2012

Nichols Berg Gallery presents "Folktales", curated by Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley. Throughout history, humans have told each other stories. These stories help to explain the world around them as well as pass on traditions, culture, rituals, behavior and history. Myths, legends, fairytales and urban legends – these are all part of the rich history of folklore. "Folktales" presents both a modern and a traditional look at these stories from a variety of sources; some are hauntingly intimate and explore the narrator’s own personal mythology while others present more pan-cultural motifs seen through modern eyes.

Reception is April 14th, 6 to 9 PM.
