August 5 to August 26

a mixed media work - a large yellow and green fern-like shape dominates the left side of the canvas, with lines radiating out from two circular objects to the left.

About the exhibition

Art is as much community as it is individual. We are shaped by those we love and those who love and have loved us. Love and community are intergenerationally woven into us all. Deatra Colbert and Maria Radilla’s work both speak to the ways in which we look to community as inspiration for voicing our own personal experience in this world.

Sobre la exposición

El arte es tanto comunitario como individual. Somos formados por aquellos a quienes amamos y aquellos que nos aman y nos han amado. El amor y la comunidad están entretejidos intergeneracionalmente en todos nosotros. El trabajo de Deatra Colbert y Maria Radilla habla de las formas en que miramos a la comunidad como inspiración para expresar nuestra propia experiencia personal en este mundo.
