We Are Artists, First at Trinity Church Parish Gallery, 600 N. Euclid.
A group show of artists affiliated with the organization Artists First STL.
Artists’ Statement: Art unleashes the human spirit; it dissolves human made barriers and it unites all human kind. The We are Artists, First exhibit gives voice to those who have been labeled, to those who society has placed its own identity on, to those who rise above and dismantle divisions. The showcased artwork is a testament to resiliency, hope and a reminder that human beings are human beings. We are Artists, First invites the viewer to ponder what connects human kind rather than separate.
