Parker's Box will be opening "Camel Art Space will be opening, "First Truth" curated by Sara Hubbs and Sara Jones: "#2," which is the second ‘Winter Salon’ show at Parker’s Box, featuring selected works by gallery artists and special guests. The artist who sets out to examine or establish a truth sometimes runs into the bigger truth that came before it: that what one wants to accomplish may be fleeting and may possibly be unaccomplishable, or that what one creates will transform into an unforeseen thing between the time it is conceived and the time it is completed." Camel Art's Project Space will be opening an exhibition of works by Yuka Otani, a new installation inspired by “Hojoki”, an essay by Chomei Kamono: a Japanese 13th century poet who expresses the sense of mujokan(impermanence) during the medieval age of wars and disasters.
