‘A Year of Blue’ is a 2-D and 3-D exhibition. Blue is the deepness of the oceans, the frailness in emotions, the memories in our heads, damages left in our hearts but ultimately Blue is the beauties of what we call life, all that is love and art.

Just as trauma can affect families for many generations, healing can ripple through and soothe those wounds. Whether it’s a child deciding to go to therapy, or a father admitting that they have caused pain, or is in fact the one who is in pain, it’s beautiful when a family is able to find a way to push forward together. In this exhibition, artists will share their victories in climbing over a mountain of inter-generational trauma and what that means for them. In coordination with Dorchester Art Project, this exhibition will be hosted on the Kunst Matrix platform, and on the Creatives of Color Boston site with an Opening Reception on December 5th.

Vor Kunst 
Van Der Plas Gallery, New York, NY
‘Vor Kunst’ is an exhibition in response to Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel aesthetics​ “The symbolic is the pre-art; and the symbolic has to go so that the spirit becomes free and gives itself a form, that its existence does not also represent something else, but only represents the spiritual. That is the goal of the symbolic”

Inspirational Journey

“Inspiration can be found everywhere; in music, in dance, in books, or by taking a walk in a silent wood. But the inspirational journey begins when what inspires becomes the visual language of art.” J. Biondolillo

Exhibition: In-person & Virtual

In response to the recently turbulent social and political climate, asking exhibiting Artists “Where do we go from here? (Quo Vadis)”. In the midst of disarray and uncertainty, we have an opportunity to reimagine alternative solutions to dysfunctional and archaic systems. We have asked artists to creatively address and examine, through their own unique visual languages, how we can adapt to changing circumstances, and “where we can go from here”.
