The Way We See It: Social [In] Justice
January 8 - February 23
Opening Reception - Friday,
January 18th, 6 - 8 pm
"The world is filled with injustice. And as of late, the political stage has highlighted both racism and sexism within our own country. This group show highlights the work of five artists that are responding to their own view of social injustice - be it racism, sexism, religious discrimination or genocide. Participating artists include Kate Longmaid, Ann Young, Jerry Ralya, Michelle Saffran and David French." Gallery Website
My part of this group show includes photographs of the Bhattarai family of Winooski along with text from interviews between writer David French and the family.
The photographs and text are from the New American Family collaboration between David, myself and the Bhattarai family. The project was funded, in part, through a Vermont Community Foundation grant and a private donation. Our contribution to this show speaks to a more humane and compassionate United States policy on immigration.
