Visual Voices: Truth Narrative, a larger scale ceramic Exhibition

Visual Voices: Truth Narratives is a NCECA ANNUAL EXHIBITION curated by Winnie Owens-Hart. 35 selected ceramic artists create powerful works that speak in a variety of visual volumes that touch on personal and global issues and emotions. Their narratives, whether literal or abstract, acknowledge that intolerances spawn racial, religious, class, and gender biases in every part of the world. The sense of interconnectedness created by modern media has transformed what was once an ancestral community to now a global community.
 
Join us in the exhibition reception to enjoy a though provoking exhibition, mingle with artists, and start a conversation about the issues address through the artworks. This event is free and open to the public!
