Art Exhibition Inspired by The Grimm’s Fairy Tales: WAIT FOR THE MOON II
Arch Enemy Arts is pleased to present WAIT FOR THE MOON II, a group exhibition featuring new work by local and international artists, each uniquely inspired by a different Grimm’s Fairy Tale.
More than two hundred years ago, German brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm traveled Europe to collect, transcribe, and transform the oral folklore told for centuries before them. The stories, known as the Grimm’s Fairy Tales, have united a world of wondrous possibility with beauty, horror, violence, and magic for generations.
In this exhibition, twenty-five of the Grimms’ classic characters and beloved stories come to life in New Contemporary paintings, sculptures, and mixed media works. From the humorous to the melancholic, the whimsical to the macabre, we are captivated by the timeless enchantment artists have achieved in these fresh interpretations of the archetypal fantasy narrative. Plus, in-person viewers are treated with a summary of the original fairytale next to each piece, like Vavara Fern’s “Little Red Riding Cap” and Cirius Scion’s “Little Briar Rose” (Sleeping Beauty).
The show will be on view in-person at Arch Enemy Arts through mid-March. Also on-view this month are beautiful solo features by Hallie Packard and Joe Vollan. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10AM-4PM and weekends from 11AM-5PM. See archenemyarts.com for more information. We hope you stop by!
