IN THE GALLERY SEPT 5 - OCT 19
Fear in the Sky

This show examines flying things from living to mechanical, real and imagined. Planes are flying – and falling. Drones buzz about, excite us and watch us. Technologies have irrevocably changed our world and our aerial veil has been penetrated. What we once considered private space is now gone. Yes, we can run, but no longer can we hide.
