Crossing the River exhibition

May 1 - May 17

Friday, May 6, 2022

Opening Reception

​5:00-9:00 PM

Join us for the Madison Spring Gallery Night, Friday May 6th, from 5:00-9:00 for an opening reception and return for additional events in the gallery as we use the occasion of the exhibit to sponsor related programming in the gallery space throughout the run of the exhibition.

Crossing the River is an art exhibition by twenty artists from Wisconsin and beyond, including exhibitors from Alaska, Texas and Spain. They come together to consider death and dying as intimate and important parts of life and living. The artists/participants share visions beyond the fear and negativity that so often makes us turn away from looking at the end of life too closely. As a group the art shared will explore grief, loss, and endings but also beginnings that emerge out of change, as well as hope, comfort, transformation and transitions, spirit and mystery, and loving humor while thinking about the actions we can take to bring agency to people and the planet in difficult times.

Gallery Open daily from 12:00-5:00 – Saturday, May 7-Sunday, May 15
