Opening – October 5, 2013, 7-10 pm


Please join us for the opening of My Creepy Diabetes Show, a part of the Emerging Artist Series at YayStudio.

“It’s a serious subject that I approach through a light touch in order to make it less taboo. The syringes are commonplace to me, although they may seem frightening to you. In creating a playful object, I hope to make diabetes an easier and more comfortable subject for all of us to consider and discuss.”

~Leah Owenby

Owenby’s work is a deeply personal exploration of being a type I diabetic. Quite literally a body of work, Owenby invites us, using her candid humor, to share in the experience of what it means to live in the presence of a disease but not its shadow.
