The Pearl Conard Gallery at Ohio State Mansfield is proud to present That which brought you here, will take you out, an exhibition curated by Cameron Granger and featuring the work of artists Eloisa Amezcua, Annie Chrissy Burley, Shabez Jamal, and Sydnie Jimenez. Granger says that the exhibition is “about love, and the tools and language we’ve been given to express that love. The title is taken from the phrase ‘I brought you into this world, and I ain’t afraid to take you out of it’, which my mother would often when we were coming up and found ourselves in any kind of trouble young kids normally do.”
