About the Exhibit

Storytelling has always been intertwined with various art forms-artists cull inspiration from scriptures, history, literature, mythology, current social or political events, personal experiences, and their own imagination. Narrative works depict events unfolding, often compressed into a single image or object that implies something has happened or is about to take place. These stories are powerful tools with the potential to evoke a multitude of emotions, allowing an audience to identify with common experiences or imagine situations they might never encounter. In Once Upon a Time..., Rochelle Abramowitz, Libby Barbee, Erin Fostel, Brent Green, Katelyn Greth, Nora Sturges, Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum, and James Allen Swainbank unite characters, plots, and imagery to create a brief escape from the everyday world.
