sophia skeans from Rockaway says:
Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA) is thrilled to announce the opening of Culture of One, a premier multicultural exhibition on view April 23 – May 21, 2017 at sTudio 7 Gallery

Opening Reception Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 5:00 pm
Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area, Rockaway, Queens, NY.

We are composites of our origins, experiences and exposures. We are people of different backgrounds, beliefs and influences. The different facets of our lives create our individual identity.

As befits a show celebrating diversity, the artworks in Culture of One represent different artistic styles, a variety of media, and a mixture of artists, ranging from familiar RAA members to those from greater NYC and beyond.

Culture of One features artworks by Edward Coppola, Lionel Cruet, Sivan Dayan, Laura Deckelman, Steve Giovinco, John Grillo, Kyunam Han, Halona Hilbertz, Sheryl Humphrey, Lenore Fiore Mills, Geoff Rawling, Adam Reich, Stephon Senegal, Sherri Tiesi and Natalie Williams.

Culture of One is curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah, noted Independent Curator and Co-Founder of ARTNOIR. According to Ossei-Mensah, "Culture of One utilizes the power of art to explore the nuances and complexities that shape our society. It is during times of uncertainty that we look to culture to trigger conversations and inquiry to help individuals rethink how they look at themselves and the world around us."

Join our Opening Reception Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 5:00 pm at sTudio 7 Gallery, Fort Tilden. Musical and dance performances by Rick Patrick, playing guzheng (Chinese zither); John Maiorino, contemporary music; and belly dancer Anastasia. Light refreshments will be served.

We are delighted to bring Rockaway this multicultural evening filled with fascinating visual art, music, and dance. Celebrate Earth Day with Culture of One, and nurture your soul with the arts!

Gallery hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 12 pm – 4 pm.
April 12, 2017, 10:36 pm
