Keep August 1 open for what promises to be a powerful exhibition that addresses a very serious topic:

STAY, is a travelogue into, and back out of, a life of depression and self-harm through the photography of Ralph Wilson and Stephanie Carey.

Wilson and Carey spent 15 months talking to people who’s lives have been touched by depression, drug addiction, and suicides to gain knowledge and understanding of the subject. Using conceptual portraits the STAY exhibit explores the causes and consequences of childhood and adolescent depression, it’s manifestations, and paths towards healing. Journal entries and letters giving personal accounts, are mixed throughout the exhibit to give a voice to some who suffer or have lost their battle.

STAY will open on August 1, 2014 at the Center for Creativity gallery in studio 10 at the Pajama Factory with a reception from 6 to 9pm. An introduction to the project will be given by the photographer, Ralph Wilson, at 7pm. The exhibit continues through August 15.
