Who holds the cards? Who has the upper hand? Do we play the hand we’re dealt or can we step up and change the game?
The prints and paintings in this exhibition take on issues of politics, influence, racism and justice in an examination of the uses and abuses of power. From the national and international players to the role of everyday folks at home encountering daily prejudices and predicaments, there’s a lot to consider in these works. We invite you to take a look and weigh in with your perspective.
Do these pieces cut through the rhetoric and inflamed passions to deliver a meaningful message or do they further compound and confound the issues they address? Have they missed the mark or can we take them to heart?
