A group exhibition with guest curator Cecilia Rossey
Exhibition runs from October 16 to December 18, 2015
Reception and Artist’s Talk: Thursday November 5, 4– 5 p.m.
The Dadian Gallery at Wesley Theological Seminary presents Votes, Violence, Victory, a group show on view from October 16 to December 18, 2015. Guest curator Cecilia Rossey explores themes of social justice, equality and the right to vote though prints, drawings and mixed-media work by 14 artists.
The exhibition presents challenging imagery by individual artists reflecting their opinions and invites discussion on these concerns as we enter a new election cycle. Pieces reference the suffragette and abolitionist movements and gun violence and anti-government protests in the Middle East. Rossey says these pieces call attention to laws and actions that change them. She also pays homage to women who stood against society’s prejudices, and commemorates the ongoing fight for equal-rights legislation.
The Dadian Gallery is a program of The Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion at Wesley Theological Seminary, which sponsors a variety of cultural events exploring the intersection between art and religion and promotes dialogue between artists and theologians.
The exhibition and Artist's Talk on Thursday, November 5 at 4 p.m. are free and open to the public. The gallery is located at 4500 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., in the Kresge Academic Building on the campus of Wesley Theological Seminary. Regular hours are Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and by appointment. The gallery is closed weekends and holidays.
