MASKED, a show celebrating masks and works that explore disguises. Halloween provides a perfect opportunity to think about masks. According to folklore, trick-or-treaters veiled their identity to protect themselves from supernatural beings and souls the may have been roaming the earth during that liminal period. For the wearer, the mask creates both a new identity and conceals the wearer's’ individual identity. Come and enjoy this collection of shifting personas, from delightful to wicked! Featuring the works of Jill Van Orden, Matthew Marks, Ron Van Orden, Madalyn Olson, Julia Humphhreys, Eve Pearce, Maggie Pesce, E.Bay and Rhonda Ratray.
Some pieces are on loan from private collections, others are for sale.
