ESPS: East Side Project Space / 507 Hagan St. August 5, 2017 - August 27, 2017

Bethany Carlson

Red Arrow Gallery is pleased to announce, Unvanished, a solo exhibition with Bethany Carlson. Unvanished opens on August 5th, 2017 at East Side Project Space (ESPS), Red Arrow’s satellite location at The Packing Plant in the vibrant neighborhood of Wedgewood-Houston.

Unvanished (adj.):  Not vanished; still present.

Bethany Carlson’s work often employs images and objects that are related to mortality and decay. Through her chosen medium of charcoal and graphite, her detailed and delicate black and white drawings of decaying flowers or insects, challenge the eye on what is being seen. 

“By selecting processes and subjects that point to mortality, one is confronted with the struggle to both memorialize and let go.” - B. Carlson, 2017
