In the main gallery..."STOP THE MADNESS" will also open. The solo exhibition features new works by Barbara Mendes. The artist explains, "'STOP THE MADNESS" will be my first exhibit of this new work, which graphically addresses the national crisis at hand and the downfall of patriarchy in general. Begun in pen and ink, the Exhibit will feature the first six Acrylic paintings of this new shift in my art. I look forward to moving the themes on into oils and into future monumental visual statements about inequality and injustice, as well the world-wide Dawning of a Nurturing, Womanist Age."
