Veronica Perez | voices, whispering

May 28 - September 11

Veronica Perez’s solo exhibition features a new body of sculptures made from braided and weaved artificial hair, a material that Perez has been deeply invested in for the past three years. The artist's intricately detailed works act as monuments to feelings of love, loss, and grief and are symbols for exploring the forgotten and stolen histories of the Latinx diaspora. Perez’s practice is both introspective and community-oriented. Much of this work is built in and by, communities in Maine through…

Reggie Burrows Hodges | Hawkeye

May 28 - September 11

Yashua Klos | Our Living

May 28 - September 11

Our Living is the first text-based work from the Brooklyn-based artist Yashua Klos.  This monumental work expands upon his unique approach to large scale woodblock printing and collage by referencing the technique’s history as illuminated manuscript before the advent of the printing press. In Our Living, a working collective of hands hold letter forms that are being overgrown with sprawling vines and wildflowers. The work seems to be a public announcement of Black resilience and prosperity being nurtured through communal action. In this…
