About the event
There are many artists in our community but not enough accessible safe spaces for gallery showing off their unique art.
Sponsored by Trans Equity Consulting, the exhibit will kick off with a reception on Saturday, November 5, and the selected artworks will then be on display for the whole month of November for public viewing during our operating hours. Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 6:00. Featured artists are A.L. Hu, Acacia Rodriguez, Carlo Quispe, Elizabeth Marie Rivera, Linda La , Mark Saldana, Ramie Ahmed, S.E. Mateo. With featured performance by Linda Lu and special reading by Cecelia Gentili from her newly released memoir Faltas.
