Join Sozo Gallery at the Crawl to see featured artist Winnie Sidharta Ambron’s exhibition “The Unbound Self.” In this exhibition, Winnie investigates identity and image through her primary method of collage. the artist presents a body of work, which touches on and challenges beauty norms and the ideal. These works have the ability to speak to each viewer and stir up both societal and inner reflection.
This month New Gallery of Modern Art is showing work by Stephanie Hirsch. Through exquisite artistry and skillful combination of media, Stephanie displays her heart, not on her sleeve, but on her canvases. She fills shaped canvases with a majestic bed of flowers that serves as an appealing resting place for her spiritually infused, stirring adages.
The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture will be displaying four exhibitions that guests can view during the #UptownCrawl. They will also have programming during the event.
