Casebeer's "Everything Is Fine Here" Is a Collection of Family Secrets at Tilt Gallery in Scottsdale

Two years ago, shortly after her father's death, Phoenix-based artist Casebeer was going through his effects. As she read one letter he had written, a line jumped out at her.

"In the second paragraph, after all this stuff, it just said, 'everything is fine here,' and I -- knowing my dad's life and knowing what was really going on -- I thought, 'That is it. That's the elephant in the room'," she says. "It was the moment that broke through: You have to put all these stories together and here's how it goes."

His nonchalant quip has become her artist's mantra as the title for her newest exhibition, "Everything Is Fine Here," at Tilt Gallery in Scottsdale.
