During these surreal days, there is a natural desire to explore the immediate reactions to and ramifications of this pandemic. There is also a need, however, to step back a bit...
 

To take a deep breath.... And move beyond the present.
 

This exhibition, then, is an attempt to momentarily serve as a restorative measure, easing the heart and uplifting the mind.

A thoughtful blend of  established and emerging contemporary voices, touching on both abstract and narrative traditions, these works, small in scale, are about openness: the balance of a form, the outline of a flower, the hopeful return of  normalcy and companionship.
 

The exhibition’s title alludes to Ernest Hemingway’s novel of the same name, and the notion that within even the most troubled generations and time-periods there remains a powerful resilience and strength.
 

We, too, shall persevere.
