Rejoice presents the celebratory nature of the summer and the sunshine of expanding community. In this group exhibition, featuring artists from all three PASC studios, the artwork of Rejoice emits a lightness in the colors, the abstraction and the figuration, celebrating the multiplicities of identities that our artists and our wider community represent. As the weather gets warmer and the sun gets brighter so does the artwork, melting the weight of winter. This exhibition features pieces representing welcoming gestures and acts of creative kindness, with intertwined shapes and hands, and warm expressions of colorful passion. The artwork of Rejoice invites in the larger community through an act of creative collective exploration.
