“Cadence” by Alice Pixley Young & Adrienne Dixon

In the Main Gallery, artists Alice Pixley Young and Adrienne Dixon present “Cadence,” a captivating multimedia exhibition that explores the dynamic interplay between light, space, and perception. Through mesmerizing site-specific installations, the artists invite visitors to embark on an immersive sensory journey that touches on themes of sustainability, color, architecture, and environment. This exhibition encourages viewers to contemplate their surroundings and forge deeper connections with the spaces they inhabit.

“Portal Again” by M’Shinda Imani Abdullah Broaddus

In the Third Floor Gallery, artist M’Shinda Imani Abdullah Broaddus presents “Portal Again,” a compelling series of photographic collages. Delving into the artist’s personal journey of self-discovery as a gay black male, these intricate collages challenge historical media portrayals that have marginalized black men, particularly within the realm of gay representation. Broaddus’ work offers an intimate window into the complexities of identity and the profound impact of historical perceptions on contemporary self-perception.
