Mona Brody: Disquiet in a Time of Uncertainty

Disquiet in a Time of Uncertainty Mona Brody, NYC and Pratt Art Institute This body of work is a response to our time of uncertainty, an unraveling sense of a reality unfamiliar to me. No longer is a silence of whispers enough to protect and create a safe haven for humanity. The innocent of the world are forced to hide, driven underground, and unauthorized to breathe. The metaphoric possibilities that result from the collection and discovery of natural objects, the physical space of the canvas, and the interaction of materials reveal the strange and uncanny place within the familiar. - Mona Brody (2017) Opening Reception: Friday, January 26, 2018, 4:00–6:00 p.m. in the Gallery
4:00 p.m.
Tattered Pieces: A Charleston Daughter Explores Loss, Faith and Forgiveness

Reverend Sharon Washington Risher was catapulted into the limelight after the Charleston, South Carolina shooting at the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in 2015, where she lost her mother, two cousins, and a best friend. Since that tragedy, Reverend Risher has been outspoken about the nation's gun laws, serving as a spokesperson for grassroots advocacy work. Her journey has included hearing and seeing Dr. King when she was a young girl, making multiple appearances on CNN, visiting President Barak Obama at the White House, and speaking at several Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial events. Join Reverend Risher as she talks about her personal experience in losing loved ones to gun violence, racism and hate in America, draws connections between Dr. King's message and the events of that time with what she sees happening today, and shares her thoughts about the path to forgiveness and an offering of hope for tomorrow.
Presentation is 4:00 p.m., reception to follow.
