Megan Burbank writes in The Portland Mercury:
"'IN THE DARKNESS, a laugh was born.' If you breeze through the door to Froelick Gallery's winter group show, Chill, you'll miss these cryptic words, but if you're paying attention, they'll be the first thing you see. They're written in barely legible graphite-colored pastel over black tempera paint above the dark, inexact shape of a crow in Rick Bartow's "Laugh Was Born." Look closer, and you'll see tiny crosses etched above the crow's body, and that more words have been erased above it; these cannot be read. It's a drawing that rewards effort—the longer you look, the more you see—which is also true of the show as a whole."
