Exhibition Curators' Statement

When the art reveals the ignored and the smothered, and is about troubling times

When the image exposes problems and the truth bursts into color on canvas

When our voices join dedicated to finding solutions

And our hope for the future endures, celebrating affirmations, resilience and quiet
