  • Jessica Ashburn, Peacefully Drowning, Oil on canvas, 36" x 24", 2018

Under pressure. Under the weather. Underneath. The word “under” is defined as “extending or directly below” yet it evokes something personal within each of us.

The Scarab Club hosts [Under], a multimedia, juried exhibition that explores the many interpretations of the word through the eyes and hands of over 25 artists. Among some of the talent are Judi Bommarito, Myles Gallagher, Stephany Latham, and Kimo Williams. A Kresge Fellowship recipient, juror Jeanne Bieri has curated a collection that dives deep beneath the surface of perception. 

[UNDER] opening reception will start at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 25 at the Scarab Club; 217 Farnsworth St., Detroit; 313-831-1250;; Reception is free and open to the public.
