Here, There, Everywhere: Beyond Inclusion
August 12 – September 17, 2021
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 2,
during First Thursday Gallery Hop, 5:30 – 7 pm
Here, There, Everywhere and Beyond seeks to recognize the innumerable cultural contributions of Black and Brown and other marginalized LGBTQIA+ people to the American social fabric. The artists chosen for this show bring a body of work that resists white supremacist, anti-black, patriarchal and classist exclusion by offering creative visions of future possibilities beyond the current systems built on exclusion. The powerful array of work explores themes from the ballroom scene, embodied queer aesthetics to queer disruptions in Fine Art. This exhibition demonstrates that representation must not be relegated just to the fringe spaces, but that it matters in all spaces, all of the time.

I am Because We Are: Ubuntu
10/7/21 – 12/20/21
Ubuntu is a term derived from the Xhosa and Zulu people of compassion. It means compassion and humanity.
We seek work that has its roots in Africa, in all its dimensions and the way in which the roots have taken hold and flourished here, in North America.
