Family and Friends

This month we are excited to host artists Lulu Smith and Sophia Lavrov and their show "Family And Friends: A Visual Exploration"

"Family and Friends: A Visual Exploration" is a collaborative exhibition/installation of mixed media collage work and oil painting.

The exhibition explores aspects of their adolescence, focusing primarily on their relationships with friends and family. The artists reflect upon their impressions of people in their past and present realities and explore the concepts of influence, shifting relationships and coming of age in a rapidly evolving world. From handling close friendships, to living independently while maintaining family relations and navigating their social lives as young women, Lulu and Sophia guide the viewer through a visual and material exploration of their experiences.

CLOSING RECEPTION
Sunday, June 23rd • 2 to 5pm

Reception will feature live music by B. DeVeaux. B DeVeaux is a 23 year old, neo soul and r&b composer, songwriter and producer from Oakland, CA. They have been changing lives with their voice since the age of 3 and have been composing since the age of 6. It all started with a voice memo app on their mom’s phone, and the rest is their-story! B DeVeaux hopes to leave audiences feeling seen and loved, by their lyrics. An opportunity to meet the artists. Wine and refreshments will be served.
