Stark Gallery presents “Sacred Contracts,” a one-night-only, pop-up art exhibit created by Flathead Valley Women in the Arts from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 6.

Stark gallery is located at 244 Spokane Ave, Suite 3, in Whitefish, above Bookworks and Third Street Market.

Flathead Valley Women in the Arts is an informal group of contemporary women artists and arts professionals working to build community with a mission to support, create, cultivate and curate conversation-starting artwork born of the hearts and minds of women.

In this exhibition, six artists explore the theme of Sacred Contracts. Strength meets fragility, vulnerability meets hope, and grief meets healing. Sacred Contracts is a snapshot of contemporary art making in the Flathead Valley. The abstract and conceptual works in the exhibition deconstruct objects, language and memory, while weaving together messages of hope, grief, love, bearing witness, and matters of conscience.

The artists showcase a diverse range of media — paint, collage, fiber, natural and found materials, sculpture, photography and poetry. The works vary in scale from hand-held to a full wall installation. The diverse pieces come together to create a landscape of healing.

Sacred Contracts is the second project presented by Flathead Valley Women in the Arts. The first was The Scream Room, an interactive public art piece by multi-disciplinary artist Kylin O’Brien, which the group brought to the Flathead Valley in May 2018.

Stark Gallery acts as pop-up space for this exhibit — otherwise it is temporary.
