5 pm - 8 pm

The Swell Gallery presents VISION QUEST, a group show featuring work by Caroline Landau, Jordan Jurich-Weston, Brian Z. Shapiro, and Valerie Thompson. 

A vision quest is a search for purpose or meaning, often carried out in the total isolation of wilderness. In indigenous cultures, it usually marks a milestone of enlightenment before reaching the next stage of maturation in life. At its heart, such a quest is an exploration, an essential probing of the human psyche into the realm of the possible. 

Encompassing four artists’ work, this exhibition seeks to unleash and lay bare the enigmas that the vision quest ritual might hold. The artists invite you to join them as they seek their individual visions from the great mother earth which sustains, gives life, and imparts her exacting wisdom upon us all. 

The Swell Gallery is located on the second floor of SFAI's Graduate Center at 2565 3rd Street. Enter from ground level on 22nd Street and the gallery is the first door on the right after arriving at the second floor from the stairwell.
