Thanatophobia @ Golden Belt Gallery

The Durham Art Guild presents, Thanatophobia featuring new works by local artist Lamar Whidbee.

““Thanatophobia” was inspired by the demise of my grandmother who lost her fight with pancreatic cancer. Experiencing the last breaths of someone I’ve known my entire life to then witness her return to earth as ashes presented clarity what I have been struggling with since adolescence. This context has allowed me to explore feeling and perspective surrounding grief, past trauma, death, and self-talk.”

– Lamar Whidbee

This exhibition is on view at the DAG Gallery at Golden Belt Campus from December 1 2022 – January 2, 2022 

Public reception with the artist during 3rd Friday Durham: December 16 from 6-9pm
