ISMS
February 12 - May 30, 2015
Avery Research Center: ISMS. This exhibition makes provocative visual statements on the oppressive and alienating forces that negative “isms” wreak on society. Many of us bear the metaphysical scars of our personal confrontations with these “isms.” While the mental and emotional scarring can be much more concrete. As artists, however, we have the tools, passion and spirit to visually convey our insights, perspectives on these ills and transform the mundane into powerful, inspiring works of art that will provoke a “hallelujah” from the “saved” and wake-up the complacent.
The opening reception will be Thursday, February 26 from 6 - 8pm. Avery Research Center is located at 125 Bull Street. For more information please call (843) 953-7609 or visit
