New Moon


New Moon


4/04/2015 - 4/25/2015


Paige Johnston (curator)


New Moon developed out of a personal interest in the cycles of the moon and the effects (real or symbolic) that it has on the planet, body, and mind. The New Moon--the time of the month when the moon passes in between the earth and the sun and appears black from earth's vantage--is a night of darkness. Symbolically it represents a time for embracing the unknown, reflecting on what one's purpose is, and setting intentions or making goals/wishes for the future.
