This event has ended.

DARE you see a soul at the white heat?
Then crouch within the door.
Red is the fire’s common tint;
But when the vivid ore
Has sated flame’s conditions,
Its quivering substance plays
Without a color but the light
Of unanointed blaze.
Least village boasts its blacksmith,
Whose anvil’s even din
Stands symbol for the finer forge
That soundless tugs within,
Refining these impatient ores
With hammer and with blaze,
Until the designated light
Repudiate the forge.

MARC STRAUS presents THE WHITE HEAT, an exhibition of white paintings and sculptures by an international selection of artists. THE WHITE HEAT, a title derived from Emily Dickinson’s Life poem, is an exhibition that focuses on purity – an uninflected surface, a clarity of thought or an instance of sheer concentrated artistic intensity. Dickinson’s “soul at the white heat”.
