All the living hold together, and all yield to the same tremendous push.
The animal takes its stand on the plant, man bestrides animality, and the whole of humanity, in space and in time,
is one immense army galloping beside and before and behind
each of us in an overwhelming charge able to beat down every resistance and clear the most formidable obstacles, perhaps even death.

-Henri Bergson,​ Creative Evolution (1907)

Deli Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled SilentTransformations​from June 23 through July 29, 2018, with an opening reception Saturday, June 23rd from 7:00 to 10:00pm
