Third Friday at the Pleiades Gallery in Durham was incredible. The gallery hosted the powerful show, “Truth to Power: Communicating Messages of Social Justice through Visual Art“. The place was packed all night, the art was amazing and the energy was electric. The exhibit included juried works by 39 North Carolina artists with emotional and provocative visual statements on a wide range of social justice topics, including: gay rights, capitalism, reproductive rights, homelessness, poverty, the Taliban, war, freedom, racism, how we are viewed by “the other,” and many more issues along with a speech from Guest Juror NC State Senator Mike Woodard. The Carolina Creative Class getting it done.
