The art showing will be March 18, 5:30 - 7 pm. Critical Juncture 2017: The Work of Art, will explore how art works to defy, resist, and call attention to the particular injustices produced by the social construction of Disability, Race, Gender, and Sexuality.

The format for their meetings is focused on the individual artist studio they are visiting.  They see this as an opportunity for the artist to have a focused viewing and response from members and artists in the community… A time for feedback and a constructive/ supportive critique.  We are also sharing books about art, brainstorming for future exhibition opportunities, and just general “art talk”! They plan to meet once a month on Sunday afternoons.
