October 28 through November 22, 2019
INTO LIGHT documents through personal portraits the tragic loss of human life caused by the drug addiction crisis in Baltimore. The exhibition features the work of artist Theresa Clower, who lost her own son to an opioid overdose, and who is using art to ease her pain and connect others who have experienced similar loss. Clower has created graphite portraits of 50 Baltimoreans lost to drug addiction. Through art, INTO LIGHT honors and celebrates those individuals, bringing light to their lives, rather than the darkness surrounding their deaths.
In coordination with this exhibition, Gormley Gallery and Notre Dame of Maryland University will offer programming including a panel discussion on drug addiction and a naloxone training workshop. All events are free and open to the public. At the conclusion of the exhibition, the portraits will be gifted to the victims' families.
