Expressions in Equality at Visions in San Diego

EXPRESSIONS IN EQUALITY
January 17—April 4, 2015
Opening Reception: January 17, 5-7pm.

"When I think of Martin Luther King, Jr., one thing comes to mind: equality. I'm not only referring to equality of
humans based on their skin color, but the broad differences amongst us that people find challenging to accept and embrace," states Sheila Frampton-Cooper, curator for the exhibition, Expressions in Equality at Visions Art Museum: Contemporary Quilts + Textiles. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on January 17th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Frampton-Cooper wants to bring attention to discrimination and the way society treats issues such as gender, age, sexual orientation, and economic inequality.

The Artists:

Alice Beasley, Dawn Williams Boyd, Blake Chamberlain, Hollis Chatelain, Shin-Hee Chin, Marion Coleman, Randall Cook, Ife Felix, Sheila Frampton-Cooper, Laura Gadson, Valerie Goodwin, Jerry Granata, Deborah Grayson, Sherry Davis Kleinman, Pauline Karasch Salzman, Patricia Kennedy-Zafred, Sandra Lauterbach, Judy Zoelzer Levine, Kathy Nida, Mary Pal, Pam Ru Bert, Susan Shie and Susan Wessels.
