How Exquisitely Human We Are
June 9th - July 31st, 2021
Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face – the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited; and the wealth and confusion that man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man. – Edward Steichen, In “Time,” 1961.

We are emerging from our “cocoons”. We are once again seeing faces, welcoming hugs, starting to lose the overwhelming feeling of anxiety, loneliness, fear for ourselves and our families.
Art in all its forms has the ability to capture the gamut of the human experience. This exhibition takes us around the world to see the love, hope, pain, sadness, and joy, all reminders of us once more emerging, if not back to “normal” than to our “new normal”.
Toni Morrison wrote in Paradise, “How exquisitely human was the wish for permanent happiness, and how thin human imagination became trying to achieve it.”
