Deliberate Compassion: Portraits from Theresa BrownGold’s Art As Social Inquiry
Thursday, October 8, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Theresa BrownGold’s portraits confront us and compel us. Beautiful, haunting, sometimes difficult, and always intimate, one look and we cannot turn away. We MUST connect.
In her Art As Social Inquiry series, BrownGold reintroduces us to talking points, policies, and politics by starting from our shared humanity. Drawn in by the power of her images, we yearn to know more about the people behind the faces. And BrownGold delivers, narrating each sitter’s story in turn.
At a time when our personal opinions can too easily overshadow the lived experiences of others, BrownGold asks us to “jump into one another’s ditches” and commit to climbing out together. H-CAN Arts Advocacy invites you to explore Deliberate Compassion in our online gallery from October 3 through November 3 and join us for a virtual opening reception and conversation with the artist on Thursday, October 8, 7:30-9 PM.
