Art As Refuge


This exhibition aims to start a conversation in our community about the themes of connection and isolation, regret and hope, angst and acceptance. Artists were asked to consider how art can create a space for dialogue about issues – social, political, and personal -- that affect us all. Some of the artists use nature as their inspiration, finding solace and hope in the great outdoors. Others seek out community connections, creating fellowship among shared experiences. Still others express their individual experiences with PTSD, infertility, cultural boundaries, and the current political climate.

There will be a diversity of media represented including photography, collage, sculpture, painting, and mixed-media.
