Love Is a Wild Horse

Gallery 788
3602 Hickory Ave, Baltimore MD, 21211
December 3 - December 31, 2015

Love Is a Wild Horse illuminates love in its many ways, shapes, and forms when challenged by behavioral health conditions, sharing what is gained from empathy and connection rather than stigmatization and separation—the benefit of "us" versus "us and them." This exhibition, curated by Kathleen Hamill, shares a host of works and inspirational narratives by artists from across Baltimore, including Shelley AmselNicole Fall, Di’Aman Fisher, Pat Dennis Giroux, David Herman, Amelia Hutchison, Ursula Cain-Jordan, Nikia Kigler, Darcie Moloshok, Stephen ReichertDevon Reiffer, David Roesner, Alyse Ruriani, Felicia Shakman, Kelly Walker, William Wright, and others.

This exhibition is dedicated to Darcie Moloshok, about whom New Day Campaign founder and director Peter Bruun writes:

"I met Darcie Moloshok in the spring of this year. I found her smart, enthusiastic, funny, and caring. She reminded me of my daughter, though the two carried different burdens from one another. Darcie was especially excited to make art for this exhibition. Despite being born with irreparable low visual acuity, she had clear vision regarding tolerance and acceptance for and of people from all walks of life. When I learned she had died, it hit me hard: another brilliant light unnecessarily out. She was full of love. It is to Darcie Moloshok we dedicate this exhibition."
