DWELLiNG in MY SouL//////Black, the color

A show of Paintings and Prints by Colleen Shelton and Charlotte Ghiorse a.k.a. House of ChoCLeT. Loosely associated riffs on the comfort of the color Black and our tribal experience of identifying with and being connected to our dwelling places. The Business of Adorning ourselves with our home, and wearing our home in the outfit. Identity as a form of protection. Subject to personal interpretation. Colleen’s Prints and Paintings of Masks are very personal and playful images relating to identity. She uses her own image as a template. Charlotte’s Paintings are about being a wandering soul and feeling like she doesn’t belong anywhere, as well as Voyeurism, Identity, belonging to a place and Day Dreaming, the void… and the safety of the color Black. At 6:00 PM on Gallery Night, the artists will host Poetry in the gallery with Sarah Wolff, Emily Sanders Hopkins, and others…and a House of ChoCLeT giveaway! And join us at 7:00 PM in the dance studio for a performance by CSMA’s adult Modern Dance class.

Artist Cole Stearns

Hi my name is Cole Stearns. I grew up in a musical family and for me music and drawing have always been something that happens together. Whenever I draw I put on some music, usually one artist for each drawing. My drawings seem to change depending on the music I’m listening to.

Everybody’s Got a Right to Live: The Poor People’s Campaign of 1968 and Today
Tim Shenk, curator

The art and imagery of the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968 and today are tools for organizing for justice and dignity. This exhibit challenges myths that blame poverty on the poor and spread a false narrative of scarcity in the world’s wealthiest nation. Gallery Night attendees will be invited to add their voices to a space called “Everybody’s Got a Right to ____.”
