IN/FLUX Exhibition Opening Reception

September 20, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Pelham Art Center presents IN/FLUX (Sept. 20th – Nov. 3rd), a visual art exhibition of people in flux, or an influx of people, bringing together immigrant and first generation artists curated by Executive Director Charlotte Mouquin and Gallery Advisory Board Member Victoria Rolett. Each artist responds to immigration stories through their unique vantage point in a time of diverging world views. Challenging norms, these artists place an up-close lens on historical and present-day issues surrounding traversing the globe, including the travails of oppression betwixt borders. Utilizing a variety of art media, they reflect the complexity of immigrant experience through installation, sculpture, encaustic, photography, design, collage, and bio art.

Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba with BombaYo! – Sunday, Sept. 22nd 2-4pm
Diwali the Hindu festival of lights – Sunday, Oct. 6th 2-4pm
Mexican Day of the Dead – Sunday, Oct. 27th 2-4pm
There will be additional performance art during ArtsFest weekend Oct. 4-6th
