    Artist Reception & Talk: Vladimir Rios and Lester Blum

    Lester_Blum_exhibit.png

    The Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents Warrior of Hope and I Still Remember, photographic narratives created by Vladimir Rios and photographed by Lester Blum.

    Warrior of Hope and I Still Remember were both created to focus mainly on HIV/AIDS.

    Warrior of Hope was created with a specific vision.  While the Warrior offers hope to all against inequality and injustice, his primary focus is to honor those who fought the HIV/AIDS battle and lost as well as offer solace to those currently fighting the war with hope for a time when the ravages of the disease will be eradicated from the earth. The exhibit has previously been exhibited at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art, the SAGE Center Midtown NYC, The Pride Center of Staten Island, and The Center on 4th in Santa Ana, CA. 

    I Still Remember is an epic, compelling photographic narrative which tells a powerful and moving story of the quest for love, devastation, and remembrance.  The story is a fictionalized compilation of the lifestyle of many gay men of the 1980's/into the early 1990’s.  The exhibit commemorates those who have passed from HIV/AIDS related causes and to help educate a younger generation about the early years of the disease. The exhibit has previously been exhibited at the LGBTQ Center in Durham, NC, The Pride Center of Staten Island, and the SAGE Center Midtown NYC. 

    Learn more about “I Still Remember,” “Warrior of Hope,” and Lester Blum’s photography work at www.lesterblumphotography.com.

    The two exhibits are curated by Deborah Rabinsky and will be on display from June 28 through July 30, 2017 with the artist reception on July 20th from 6-8pm.

    The artist reception is a sober social event. No alcohol will be served.

    Artist Reception & Talk: Craig Matis

    Craig_Matis_reception.png

    The Fine Art Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center present Tightrope: Walk The Line by Cleveland-based artist Craig Matis from October 12 - November 12, 2017, with the artist reception and talk on October 13 from 6-8pm. 

    In describing the exhibit, Matis writes, "Much of my work, although not all, has pertained to social inclusion/exclusion. In the past, issues such as racism and parenting an autistic child have been addressed. The circus, in the context of the visual arts, has often been presented as a metaphor for the human condition. The circus is a non-traditional community that has always existed outside the mainstream of society. With the creation of “Tightrope: Walk the Line”, a wall installation that combines visual art with an original song, the most direct visual approach could have been executed by a much more literal interpretation of the song.  However, I chose to come from an entirely different angle by drawing a parallel between the circus world and a group of people that society also looks upon as existing outside the mainstream: the trans* community. Though much has changed for the trans* community in the last few years, with regard to the public’s awareness, there is still a measure of societal ignorance and discomfort about the struggles trans* individuals endure to become the people they believe they were always meant to be."

    This is a sober social event. No alcohol will be served.
