I Dreamt in Tar and Sugar | A Solo Exhibition by Madeline McLaughlin


ART | $5 SUGGESTED DONATION | ALL AGES | Our newest exhibition, I Dreamt in Tar and Sugar, features collaged works by artist Madeline McLaughlin. Madeline’s pieces explore the relationship between dreams and nightmares — like two sisters of a made-up mythology. Through collage, Madeline evokes the existence of a limbo where the two entities live. Borrowed from Neil Sharpson’s description of cartoons from 1937-1942, “Tar and Sugar” describes the relationship between moments of sweetness and moments of horror — a relationship Madeline relates to the landscape of sleep. Each piece allows space for both the sweet and the dark, as they depend on one another to live within the dreaming mind.
