Featured Member Exhibition: Jeanette Arellano
July 22- October 1,2022
Our Raices are a part of who we are. Like a tree, crecen con la fortaleza de raice a otra, each root connects to create a beautiful story. When parasites try to invade its root, yes they get hurt but the do not die instead our raices heal each using with each others strength. Mis pieces están hechas usando esa idea, que como un arbol nuestro dolor, historias, momento íntimos y esperanza nosotros podemos superar para nuestras familias y comunidad. PAL PUEBLO!!!
