3 THRU Feb 26

Invisible Fractures

As we draw nearer to Valentine’s Day, it bears reminding that relationships aren’t all heart-shaped Mylar balloons and long-stemmed roses. Sometimes, love hurts—and sometimes when it hurts, it isn’t love at all. That’s the idea behind local photographer Rachel Tine’s new exhibit Invisible Fractures: The Enduring Trauma of Emotional Abuse. On view at the Piano Craft Gallery through Feb. 26,  it combines stirring photographs of 22 victims of emotional abuse with audio clips of the survivors’ stories. Profits from sales of Tine’s prints will benefit local domestic violence shelter Casa Myrna, and staff will be on hand to provide information and resources at the opening on Feb. 3, which also includes booze and bites from Lord Hobo Brewing Co., Bantam Cider, Emma’s Pizza and Sofra Bakery & Cafe, plus an after-party at Hojoko.
