art + justice with Amber Robles-Gordon

art + justice is a platform for adults to explore the intersection of tactile art-making, thoughtful reflection, and personal enrichment. Through artist-led guided projects audiences unlock their creative potential within themselves, while also enjoying the opportunity to exchange ideas with community towards social justice. art + justice is a hands-on maker space that stimulates creative agency, while providing the mental and emotional space to work through complicated issues around race, gender, identity, and social cohesion.

At The Altar: From the Fruit of My Love and Labor, Solo Exhibition at Delaware State University

At The Altar: From the Fruit of My Love and Labor, Solo Exhibition at Delaware State University

At the Altar: Fruit of My Love and Labor, represents the process of bringing forth the efforts of my daily thoughts, intentions and actions as best as I can. Then I lay them down at my altar, for myself, for my loved ones, my ancestors and for Spirit. This exhibition is specifically centered on the intersections of creating and using installation art as a form of altar. A personal altar is a dedicated space, designed and erected to celebrate or commemorate something important; an idea, a person, goal or a life intention. These installations are instruments that speak to my personal exploration of loving Spirit, loving myself, my family and specifically my son.

Art Watch: The place for what’s new – The Delaware Contemporary

Art Watch: The place for what’s new – The Delaware Contemporary

This week’s Art Watch is all about an important center for the arts that most of you have never been to. The Delaware Contemporary, or DCCA, is a fascinating art center with ever-changing art installations that is located just 24 minutes from Longwood Gardens, and is free to the public and open every day except Monday.

DCCA has a large parking lot, is easy to get to from I-95 or down Route 52, and offers a safe, light-filled, airy space full of new art to nudge the senses. Such a cool place, and most of us have never been there! Artists often sigh that there are not enough places that show contemporary art (that is, art that shows a new take on what’s going on in the world around us), but sigh no more because we have DCCA.

The Mosaic Project: Amber Robles Gordon and Nathaniel Lewis

The Mosaic Project: The significance of art in the lives of our youth cannot be underestimated. Yet, just when research is finally emerging that supports this, budget cuts and curricular demands are threatening the foundation of creativity in our public schools. In order to fill that gap as well as enrich the community, Pennsylvania College of Art & Design developed The Mosaic Project, a multicultural exhibition and education program for students and families in Lancaster County.
