Vice Night!

In 2021 we introduced an entirely new suite of pop-up exhibits conceived and hosted by Brandy Swartz. These one night exhibitions were created to expand the boundaries of creativity, challenge artists to push their personal limits and integrate the community into an in depth view of alternative photography, art, subjects and visions. This collection of exhibitions provide an alternative way of experiencing artwork, and push the boundaries of what it means to install and display art.

We are excited about growing this audience, and for the shows already slated for 2022.

Big Pharma has total control over those who suffer from chronic illness and many other medical issues. The crippling expenses and confusing hoops to jump through to acquire coverage, present an added layer to navigate for those who are already battling a daunting illness.

I have spent the last decade as a Type 1 diabetic, and twice that as a working artist. In the years since my life changing diagnosis, I perhaps subconsciously began creating work that depicted my new reality. As each series of work has grown, they have become self portraits of my past, present and future self. Some in very literal ways, while others have become more abstract. These works artistically illustrate me in the face of the mental, physical and financial fatigue connected to my chronic illness.
