Exhibitionista: “Turmoil and Transformation” at the Hera Gallery and Educational Foundation

May 15 @ 1:00 pm - July 19 @ 5:00 pm
Hera Gallery and Educational Foundation, 10 High Street
Wakefield, RI 02879 United States

I am thrilled to be showing "Torrent and Tangle: Keep your House In Order" in  the:

"Turmoil and Transformation" show at the Hera Gallery and Educational Foundation, a non-profit, artist-run organization that  has continued to stimulate discussion and challenge perceptions for over 40 years. This creative space has allowed countless artists a place for transformation, exploration, and community with one another which has been BRINGING CREATIVITY TO THE COMMUNITY SINCE 1974

"2020 was a year that was filled with worldwide turmoil. The Pandemic. Another reckoning with racism and police brutality. Climate Change, wildfires, hurricanes, and droughts.  The undermining and politicization of science. The widening political divide. An election with voting rights, healthcare, immigration, paid sick leave, income inequality, living wages, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, our environment and the future of democracy at stake.

Is this turmoil leading to transformation? And what kind of transformation is it going to be?"
