Reflections on Home Art Exhibition: Opening Reception
March 6, 2020 @ 6:00pm–8:30pm
The Reflections on Home art exhibition features the work of Bay Area immigrant artists, each expressing their reflections on “home” and “belonging.” As these themes become political points in national policies, especially for people of color living in the US, the immigrant women showcased in this exhibition are firmly making their roots known through a proclamation of their “home” though the visual arts.
The artworks include photography, calligraphy, origami, painting, and mixed media, and include pieces by renowned artists such as Lisa Jan Fong, Manizeh Raza, Fatima Zehra, and Patricia Rojas-Zambrano.
Co-sponsored by Oakland Asian Cultural Center, ARTogether, and Gathering All Muslim Artists (GAMA).
