The Dragon that Never Sleeps – a solo exhibit by Anna Crowley Ford


Anna Crowley Ford’s installation consists of over 40 handmade ceramic heads in her own likeness. Each describes a different feeling or experience that she has when she is attacked by migraines. She has beautiful photographs of herself along with her story. The exhibit will include a video that she has made of herself doing simple tasks while experiencing these migraine headaches. There is a meter that goes with each vignette that tracks The escalation of her pain and nausea as she performs these tasks.

It is a beautiful and important work of art. Since so many people suffer from migraine headaches and other debilitating situations I believe as many people as possible should have an opportunity to see this exhibit.

Join us for a 2nd chance reception on Saturday, December 17 from 6:00-9:00 pm.  Exhibit on display through January 14.  For an alternate viewing time, please contact the gallery.

The Small Gallery is located in the west wing of Valley View mall, at 13331 Preston Rd., Dallas, Texas (@ LBJ/Preston).
