A self-portrait of Megan wearing a face mask is printed into the green chlorophyll of a hosta leaf. Her face takes up the whole leaf and only one eye is visible through her overgrown sweeping hair. The face mask is decorated with vine and leaf patterns.

Artist Talk and virtual exhibition
Friday, January 29, 7pm EST

Zoom link sent upon registration
On Friday, January 29th @ 7pm EST, join curator Noah Phillips for a live, virtual celebration of resilience with the exhibiting artists. We will discuss their creative processes, their work, and the personal journeys that led them each to face, and learn from, their individual challenges. Although our wounds may be unique, the gifts are collective. Our artists have lived to tell the tale—come listen!⁣

“Without the weight given by a wound consciously realized, [one] will lead a provisional life.” — Robert Bly

The Gift In The Wound highlights the work of artists who have confronted their fears, traumas, and shadows, and emerged on the other side with unexpected insights, treasures, and talents to share with and enrich their communities. The wounds explored vary from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual, and the media from paint, fabric, glass, and beyond. Each work celebrates an enduring process of transformation reflected in nature, in myth, and in our bodies.

The Gift in the Wound is Noah Phillips‘ curatorial debut. Before beginning his residency at Flux Factory, where his work has focused on the intersections of folk ritual and innovative understandings of psychological “plurality,” Noah was working as a Peer Specialist in the New York City’s public mental health system. He is also a Licensed Master of Social Work and an organizer with the Institute for the Development of Human Arts, a training institute for transformative models of mental health.

*The exhibition will take place at Flux Factory’s Garage Bay Gallery. In response to COVID-19, all visitors are required to wear a face mask and follow social distancing guidelines. We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment.
