THAW can mean all of the following things; to go from a frozen to a liquid state, to become free of the effect of cold as a result of exposure to warmth, to be warm enough to melt ice and snow, to abandon aloofness, reserve, or hostility, or to become mobile, active, or susceptible to change. It’s also a form of renewal and growth for something new. We embrace all of this with our first exhibition of the already approaching spring. This is celebrated with diverse and exquisite works by nine artists, who each have interpreted the theme in their own respective mediums.
