August 2018 - Sin?  

How does a civilization's concept of sin and evil influence or express itself in fine art? What is sin? What isn't? Who cares? How do we define “Sin”? The Seven Deadly Sins: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth are behavioral but are they amoral? Is anything intrinsically ethical, or righteous or evil in reference to some universal code? No deity, no sin? Does that mean no right or wrong; nothing moral or immoral? Is there good karma and is anything taboo?

Art at the CAVE opens its doors to “Sin?”, our freshest exhibit yet at Vancouver's newest art gallery. 108 E Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver, WA 98660. Opening exhibition starts 5pm August 3, 2018 and continues through September 1, 2018. First Friday opening events and the opportunity to meet the artists August 3 from 5pm-9pm. Regular gallery hours are 10am-4pm Tuesday-Saturday.
