The Faces of Politics: In/Tolerance

Exhibition dates:

Amy John Woodin, Obama Hope in Plastic, 2009, Plastic Card marquetry.

2016 will be a pivotal time in the United States: a watershed moment in the divide of our national political system. Racial tensions, religious freedom, women’s health and reproductive rights, equality in the work place, gender equality and L.G.B.T. rights are all vulnerable to dramatic changes – both good and bad. The Faces of Politics: In/Tolerance asks artists to examine, on a personal level, how their creative vision is influenced by the current political unrest – locally, nationally, and on a global scale. Guest curator: Bruce Hoffman, Director Gravers Lane Gallery, Chestnut Hill, PA. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Caroline R. Graboys Fund, Katherine Glover, and Gravers Lane Gallery. www.graverslanegallery.com

Be sure to attend the reception on Sunday, April 17, 2:00 – 5:00 pm with a 3:00 pm panel discussion led by Julie Burros, Chief of Arts and Culture for the City of Boston. Read more here and register.
