PLEIADES ARTS PRESENTS 8TH ANNUAL TRUTH TO POWER SHOW
Exhibit at Power Plant Gallery, Durham NC
August 6-30, 2020
Pleiades Arts presented its 8th annual “Truth to Power” visual arts show from August 6 to 30. The juried exhibit, which includes video, mixed media, painting, sculpture, and photography, features 31 North Carolina artists, from 8 counties, who speak to pressing issues of social justice. The exhibit is being hosted by Power Plant Gallery at the American Tobacco Campus.
The stunning and emotional works in the exhibit provide powerful commentary on our times, with a focus on structural racism’s impact on a personal and societal level. In this year of 2020, as we face viruses of many kinds, “Truth to Power” is a timely expression of frustration, anger, anxiety, and even hope.
Truth to Power 8 was juried by Angel Dozier and Cornelio Campos.
A Truth to Power 8 Juror’s Talk was hosted on Zoom on August 7, 2020 at 7pm.
There will be an Online Gallery of all Accepted Work.
