Queer Galleries

Our Queer Galleries host art exhibits that celebrate LGBTQ+ artists and LGBTQ-themed art.
Exhibits are professionally curated and each exhibit includes an artist reception. We also host exhibits that bring LGBTQ+ history to life -
featuring materials from the Lehigh Valley LGBT Community Archive, or hosted in partnership with external organizations.

A collaboration between Keith R. Breitfeller & Brian David Dennis

Exhibit begins: May 6  •  Artist Reception: Friday, May 10 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

The exhibit, “Counterpoise” is a collection of self-portraits. Born in childhood, the works celebrate a persistent curiosity. This timelessness is evoked in neoclassical dreamscapes. Standing against expectations and restrictions the images close long open circles. They honor aspirations, be they an expression of identity or fleeting fascinations. 

This exhibit will be shown in the Queer Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center May 6 - 31, Tuesday through Friday.
