"How with this Rage shall Beauty hold a Plea?" Panel Discussion and Opening

  • Kehler Liddell Gallery 873 Whalley Avenue New Haven, CT, 06515 United States (map)

Artemis, Cast resin, 2018 

It’s an age-old question. Are artists responsible for creating challenging works and addressing critical issues of our time head on? Are other expressions trite or selfish acts of escapism? Or can beauty be powerful? Can the act of creating beauty during a time of ugliness be a form of resistance in itself, offering a vision of all that humans can aspire to?

The exhibition will run from April 26th – May 27th, 2018, a timeframe that includes Westville's Annual Art Walk (May 11th & 12th, 2018). The opening reception will be on Sunday, April 29th, 3-6pm with a panel discussion @ 2pm moderated by Lucy Gellman, Editor of the Arts Paper.
