Black History Exhibit - 
From Embarrassment to Pride

January 11 - March 1, 2023

Artist Guylaine Conquet explores black hair history as it relates to her own experience and transition to natural.  Black people have been conditioned to think of their hair as a tiresome, time-consuming burden.  Many people don’t perceive black hair as a positive attribute and European hair textures are still seen as a standard of beauty.  The messages conveyed in her work are the pleasures of being naturally beautiful, being yourself, embracing your difference.   Information on The Crown Act is incorporated in this exhibition.

Opening Reception, Artist Talk Back and Hair Care Workshop on Friday, January 13.  5:30 – 8:30 pm.

Free Sip and Paint class with the artist for children aged 8 – 14 years on Saturday, February 4.  2:00pm – 4:00pm

Human/Nature - 
A Series of Soft Sculpture Portraits

March 14, 2022 - May 6, 2022

 Human/Nature displayed ten soft sculpture portraits by Amanda Madrigal that explore our delicate relationship with the earth that sustains us. Using materials sourced from her extensive collection of donated and found textiles, Amanda takes the audience through a lush landscape of installed pieces that Human_Nature_Exhibition_Image_-_20914___amanda_madrigal aim to evoke the same feelings of harmony and balance that are found only in nature.  A synthesis between human forms and those inspired by the natural world create moments of surrender by the figures that inhabit them.  Figures that express what it means to be fully present. Button up shirts, domestic objects, and various textiles are taken apart and put back together in ways that transcend into the metaphysical and describe the realization that we are all part of the same thread, that of the earth.

Manifested with alluring intricacy and an abundance of repurposed materials, Human/Nature comments on society’s current practice of over-consumption and calls for a more sustainable alternative. One that promises a future in which all living things thrive.

“Only through this process of repeatedly taking things apart and putting them back together a new, am I able to navigate the human experience in a way that makes sense to me.  Every stitch is a cathartic and tangible expression of my collaboration with life.

Through this process, I find peace.”
