Fireflies, crows, fairies, dragonflies, owls, angels, butterflies, bats and beyond; all celebrate the miracle of flight.

This seven-woman show captures both the magic of the natural world and the fantastical realm of imagination. Things with Wings explores the artists’ myriad approaches to this age-old phenomenon.  Through realistic representations or metaphorical, mythological allusions, this exhibition ponders the relationship between gravity and solidity, freedom and repression, body and spirit.  Flying offers an entry into the themes of beauty and metamorphosis, freedom and freewill, fear and fascination – be it through the physical separation from our earth, or a metaphysical flight of fancy!
