Us, Them & You
Studio Place Arts (201 N Main St., Barre, VT)
Exhibit Dates:  March 8 - April 16, 2016
Reception:  Sat., Mar. 12, 4-6PM

While occupying a single earth, many generations of people have amplified their differences from others and the similarities within their own defined groups.  Rather than coalescing around the idea that “we’re all in this collectively,” these extreme “US,” not “THEM” perspectives are expressed in both radical and in socially-accepted ways through racial and class prejudice, genocide, wars, political corruption, resource allocation, and fear messaging on social media.

This global, invitational exhibit involves more than 24 artists from the U.S. and around the world.

Opening Reception:  Sat., Mar. 12, 4-6PM
