Inner State Gallery says
Glass, Cinder and Thorns - The all-women, fairy-tale inspired group exhibition debuting at 323East Gallery in 2009 made such a huge impact both locally and nationally, that we decided to bring it back! Inner State Gallery, 1xRUN, and Curator April Armand are excited to be a part of this wonderful show that will open in March 20 2015.

Curator's Statement: As children, our parents often read us bedtime stories of little mermaids, sleeping beauties, and little red riding hoods. However, these seemingly innocent stories often had evil lurking within their pages. The more we age, the more we realize how wonderful being an innocent child can sometimes be. Losing ourselves in fantasies of white horses, magic, and dazzling princesses. What Disney failed to mention is that the mermaid dies, multiple suitors defiled sleeping beauty, and the wolf ate grandma. Horrible things happen everyday and we all sometimes wish for a place and time where life is simpler and better. We find ourselves yearning for the warmth of our childhood beds, the calming voice of our parents, and the journey back to that enchanted world. Yet we must remember that even in fairylands of beauty and glitter, evil things creep about in false glamours. It may be the evil witch living in the gingerbread house or a beautiful sea nymph singing you into your watery grave. I’d like the artists to interpret what fairy tales they most remember, or most cherish.
