Pleiades Arts has exciting new art arriving all the time. Fresh shows are installed in our main gallery approximately every 6-8 weeks, and a different artist is featured in our upstairs gallery every month. We have monthly receptions every Third Friday (from 6-9 pm) as well as many other events. See below for show listings and events through 2018. All events are free and open to the public. Please come visit us, meet the artists, and fall in love with the art.
AUGUST 9 – SEPTEMBER 9
TRUTH TO POWER 6
Third Friday Reception: Aug 17th, 6-9 pm
Truth to Power 6: Communicating Messages of Social Justice Through Visual Art is an annual juried show focusing on matters of social justice. This year we are pleased to announce that Sarah Schroth, Director of Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, is the juror for this exhibit. The title, derived from a 1955 Quaker pamphlet, “Speak Truth to Power” illustrates a commitment to voicing our diverse truths to the systems and individuals shaping the society in which we live. The exhibit is intentionally broad in scope so that each artist may address issues of personal, local, national, and/or international importance. The exhibit will feature North Carolina artists working in 2D and 3D media.
