Speak Truth to Power Encore Events!

The opening reception for the Speak Truth to Power show was so crowded that many people had trouble seeing the artwork! Now there will be TWO encore events where you can come to the gallery, talk to participating artists, and actually see the exhibit. In a Salon format the artists will be able to tell you more about their work and what inspired them to speak their truths in visual format.  The dates for these salons will be:

Thursday, August 29th from 6-8 pm

and

Thursday, September 5th from 6-8 pm

Truth to Power

truth3The Pleiades Gallery community arts show, “Truth to Power,” is open and waiting for you to explore. The exhibit includes juried works by 39 North Carolina artists with emotional and provocative visual statements on a wide range of social justice topics, including: gay rights, capitalism, reproductive rights, homelessness, poverty, the Taliban, war, freedom, racism, how we are viewed by “the other,” and many more issues. We are honored to have the work of so many talented artists in our gallery until mid-September.

The opening reception for the show is Friday, August 16 from 6-9 pm. At the same time, weather permitting, there will be an open mic event across the street at Five Points Plaza. Everyone will have an opportunity to speak their truth to power.
