Imperfect Gallery Events

Mar 15, 2023 | Arte, English


MAR 10 – APR 15, 2023
Opening Reception Friday, March 10
5:30 – 8:30pm (Rumba afterwards)

We at iMPeRFeCT Gallery, don’t have a standard or conventional way of doing things, including choosing our exhibitions, we go with the flow and follow our gut sometimes, so when artist Vivian Lehrer walked in with a glint in her eyes and told us about her idea of having an open call to artists that share her passion, we were immediately captivated, and coming from our deep belief that many of our society’s problems stem from our disconnection from Mother Nature, we jumped on it and turned the gallery over to her vision.

We are delighted to invite you to the opening reception for «ephemeral partner» an exhibition of 22 artists, some local some not, who have come together to transform the gallery with their common efforts to question the notion of human mastery and dominion over the rest of the natural world, our true womb, and imagine reverent ways of walking with each other and this planet.. We hope to move you, to inspire you, to reflect… before its too late…

We’re excited to also have sculptures outside the gallery for everyone to see, plus there are LOTS of events planned until April 15, so scroll down, take a look at our Calendar and we hope you can join us sometime!
