I hope you can join us at the Berkeley Art Center for the Opening of a multi-city show, With Liberty and Justice for Some. This multi-artist show is themed around personal immigration stories.
I've been invited to show work as part of this show:
September 23 - October 8, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept 23, 6 - 8 pm
Co-curated by artist Monica Lundy and gallerist Walter Maciel, this exhibition features portraits of immigrants to the United States by artists from Los Angeles and the Bay Area. Back when Donald Trump was still the President-elect, long before his executive order became a flashpoint for pro-immigrant rallies at airports across the nation, Lundy, like many in her artistic community, felt both helpless and determined to do something. In response to this need, Lundy and Maciel invited artists from across the country to make 8 x 8-inch portraits of individuals who came to the United States as immigrants including historic subjects, personal friends, relatives, strangers, and self-portraits. The exhibition launched in Los Angleles, then traveled to the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery and will be exhibited at Berkeley Arts Center from September 23 to October 8, 2017.
The work includes many different mediums such as acrylic and oil paint on canvas, mixed media and collage on panel, photography, drawings and other works on paper. The culmination of specifically selected portraits will be assembled in an installation depicting the American Flag while others are grouped together to celebrate the diversity of our country.
If you're in the LA area, I hope you can drop by the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art to see Elements 3:Water/Commerce that will be up for the month of June.
