“Each examines their personal experiences and home communities to uncover issues and ideas that add to the larger conversations around systemic racism, climate change, and gun violence. Although the projects these photographers undertake delve into serious issues, the underlying themes are about building connections, bridging differences, about seeing and being seen.”

Dissonance & Resonance: Four Photographers is on display until July 25.

Finally, Small Gestures of Repair is a juried exhibition featuring the work of twenty-three artists from across the United States, and one from Austria. The exhibit “reflects the challenges of Year 2020– a time of global pandemic, ecological disaster, racial unrest, economic crisis, and political contention. The statements of the artists themselves bear witness to the times as they record the living hardships of what it is to be human in a time of disease and frayed edges.”
