The Des Lee Gallery is proud to present Smoldering: A Project by Museum Blue,featuring artists Justin Favela (Las Vegas, Nevada), Jemila MacEwan (Brooklyn, New York), Kat Reynolds (St. Louis, Missouri), Rachael Starbuck (Austin, Texas), and Joe Ziolkowski (Batavia, New York).
Museum Blue, in collaboration with the Des Lee Gallery, has conceived an exhibition as a reflection and attempt to process the last year of dramatic events and upheaval. In this year, we have witnessed many actions and events that have leveled a blow to many of the virtues we hold dear. All of us at Museum Blue are sad, frustrated and shaken. However, in this moment of reflection, we believe that art can serve us as a sounding board and a conduit, to a more thoughtful and inclusive world. This leads us to the optimistic part, and though we must never forget the indignities, we must work and look to the promise of better times. We sing the blues while working for a better day.
February 3, 2017 – March 11, 2017 Opening Reception, Friday, February 3, 2017, 6-9p.
