First the Pain I "How Are You?" by Alyse Ruriani

First the Pain I

Rosenberg Gallery, MICA
1301 Mount Royal Ave., Baltimore MD, 21217
October 7 - October 25, 2015

What pain looks like when one is suffering with mental illness or addiction, or affected by a loved one’s hurting, and what flows from that pain. How might we find a place of compassion to become part of the solution rather than contributing to the suffering? First the Pain I, co-curated by Peter Bruun and Alyse Ruriani of NAMI at MICA, includes works by Kaitlin Beebe, Ben Cricchi, Amanda Davies, Michelle Labonte, Bess Lumsden, Alexa Rich, Alyse Ruriani, Garrett Seldman, Emma Jo Shatto, and Lauren Siegel.

Partner: Maryland Institute College of Art, NAMI at MICA
