hope through art

I curated a benefit a short term exhibition that coincided with and was in peaceful protest to the 2017 inauguration. This was a community effort and events were held at the gallery throughout the day.  We joined others in the arts community to show our support to those that work towards keeping Portland a just and diverse place to live and work. 100% of the sales, amounting to just under $2000, were donated to Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project in Portland, Maine.
