up[route]d suggests upheaval, chaos, conflict, migration and sorrow. The daily news delivers stories saturated in all of these themes from our own southern border, to the war in Syria, to the ones who stayed behind. These artists explore what it means to be displaced, watched, misunderstood and persecuted, all while searching for a space, a country, a new home that is empathetic, welcoming, and safe from violence and conflict.

Artist talks begin at 6:30pm. This event is FREE and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by The Arkwright Foundation, Bagwell Fence, Santo Lubes, Kerin Hannah, Susu + George Dean Johnson Jr, Margaret + George Nixon, and Bob’s Car Wash.
