Artist Reception Friday, March 9th 6-8PM in conjunction with Arts Night Out
A Fundraiser for the Center for New Americans
The last year has underlined the remarkable power of words in our public discourse. These simple collections of letters can be wielded to denigrate and destroy or illuminate and liberate. This collection of recent drawings is an attempt to grapple with words’ power while retaining a sense of playfulness. Playfulness has power, too. The proceeds of my sales for this exhibit will be donated to the Center For New Americans, to support their language and literacy education.
