Society is strange in its contradictory push for individuality and conformity. Scared to be the same as everybody else because it could mean mediocrity – yet afraid to be too different because it could mean risking acceptance. So we cover ourselves out of shame and fear. We live our lives behind partially drawn curtains, shining light only on the parts of ourselves we have deemed good enough to love.
Gallery 788 invites everyone to pull back those curtains and unite the parts of ourselves that make us whole. Come celebrate the uniqueness in ourselves and in others and share in the love that makes us one-in-the-same at Spectrum: G788’s 2nd Annual Queer Art Show.
Spectrum in its modern usage means there is a unifying theme at either end. We need more moments that cross the line of conformity to unite and celebrate our diversity. We need the arts to help bridge our differences and expand the fabric of our culture. In such serious times we also need to have some fun too. So with these words in mind we set forth a call for artist to show their colors and unite in a show that celebrates our individuality however we want to term it; queer, gay, lesbian, trans……human.

And your chance to catch some of his amazing work this Friday at Barcode. Find out more about that [...]
