Exhibition offers alternate take on Valentine's Day

The Tona Pearson-curated “Dark Love” exhibition will mark its fifth year in 2018. This year's theme is “Forbidden Love.” The theme is the only guideline provided to artists, who Pearson said now look forward to participating in this darker, less lovey-dovey take on Valentine's Day.

“We do our best to curate the pieces as a whole, to create a bit of a narrative,” Pearson said.

The show opens during Franklinton Friday and continues through the end of the month.
