As we continually persevere through the devastation of the Covid 19 pandemic, many of us have developed an increased awareness of our mortality as well as the fragility of everything around us, including the people, places, and things we cherish. Even when handled with the utmost care though, they are just as susceptible to the cracks, breaks and destruction as a porcelain tea cup. For this juried exhibition, Hamilton Street Gallery is asking artists to consider what is fragile in reference to any person, place, object or existing circumstance. All media will be considered for acceptance.

G. Kellum challenges the rear view perspective of artistic expression and dives into the world of urban aesthetics, as we know it. It also explores the possibilities present in spiritual and psychological practices. Look then, look again. As we move toward the future the images grow more familiar with each truth they unveil. This then becomes a series that grows with time.
