Woman Made Gallery Presents: It's About Time

Early or late, young or old, past and present. Time engulfs and carries us by seconds, centuries, and increments between. If we can’t keep up, we fall behind. We are influenced by history, from what came before for better or worse. We are told that if we don’t learn from it, we’ll repeat it. Our aspirations, goals, even our fears for the future color our futures. We think of time as crawling, racing, or breathing down our necks. We take time, waste time, give our time. People say “act your age,” and speak of that which is timeless or slipping away. Time is the matrix through which we move: that for everything there is a season and the times, they are a-changing.
