Artist Reception Thursday, Oct. 25th 4:30-6:30 pm Artist Gallery Talk at 5:30 pm.  NC Poet Laureate, Jaki Shelton Green responds as 'witness' through her poetry for the five exhibiting artist's body of work in this exhibition. Social issues such as inequality and division in our society that deviate from the ‘norm’ are the focus of this exhibition. The majority having the power in what or who we should be has created the category of the “other”. Artwork and writings concerning those that may not fit the norm- whether through the celebration of their otherness or to the opposite side of the spectrum being those that struggle due to it.  Topics range from class, education, gender, mental health, and race. Who is the majority and who is considered “other” is a social construct that we are told to believe which creates division amongst ourselves through politics, religion, education, and media. How can our differences be a way to unify us versus a reason to divide, categorize and disconnect us?
