Dear Democracy...
curated by Alexis Mendoza

The exhibition addresses contemporary socio-political issues and challenges traditional boundaries and hierarchies imposed by individuals and groups in power; the exhibiting artists believe that art opens space for marginalized groups to be seen and heard, especially in the current political climate. Dear Democracy… explores the conversation that unlocks all other conversations; what participation in democracy means today.

Hybrids: Small Paintings on Panels
Patrick Burns
presented by Casimir Effect

“It was this act of shrouding and covering up that has stayed with me in one form or another to this day; it’s very loaded symbolically and is my connection to the Southern Gothic-mystery that what’s on the surface is not what’s underneath.” — Patrick Burns

Soonae Tark

"I have enjoyed living here and am enriched by the landmarks of the Sunnyside neighborhood. Upon first moving here, I tried to free myself and just feel the environment around me. The energy of New York City with its diversity and complexity nurtured me enough to begin again. Even now, when I come back from a long trip, I feel like this is my hometown."

Karen LeBlanc

Garments and art objects have been made from fabrics that Karen LeBlanc designed and printed by hand; multi-dimensional patterns and designs that ensconce the body and beautifully camouflage and accentuate all shapes and sizes. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind creation inspired by style through the ages from cave human couture to space alien chic, and made from natural hemp and cotton fabrics.

Potential Risks and Discomforts
Paul Brainard

Paul Brainard's paintings and drawings evolve in his exhibit, "Potential Risks and Discomforts."

Gioconda
Mie Yim

Mie Yim will exhibit her bright works of metaphysical portraits of beings with pathos, anxiety and pugnacious hilarity. "I layer soft edges, like cotton balls. I construct lines horizontal and vertical, like scaffolding or skeletons. I erase, scuff, glaze, lay on paint thick and thin. I use sugary saturated colors and linear forms that are derived from anthropomorphic parts that could conjure up bunny ears or doe eyes," explains Yim.
