Renny Molenaar will do something very uncommon around here, he’ll be showing some of his «Lighter Statements» on 10ft all black American military flags, in THe BaCKRooM of the gallery. This series belongs to the larger body of work known as «The Disappointing Patriotic Artworks».
THe GReaT GLaSS eLeVaToR, our project room, welcomes Kaang Tha Groove and his installation «PNDH Peace Zen Garden», sand and all, sounds intriguing!! And lastly but never least, Baron Roane is taking on the ReDRooM with «My Life As a Box». We’re just gonna let your imagination run with that one, come see it!

TERRELL HALSEY «ASCEND: BEYOND THE VEIL»
In THe FRoNTRooM
This exhibition centers everyday Black life through conceptual street photography. Ascend explores the contemporary Black experience, Black consciousness, and imaginative Black futures through everyday Black life in Center City Philadelphia.
Black and white street photography serves as visual stories that paint realities but also allow space for reflection, poetry, and conception. These subjects serve as pieces & stories of a people who have had to be resilient, who have had to survive, and who have had to be creative and fight to progress. In these subjects Terrell sees pieces of humanity and society, as well as pieces of himself. Taking place in Center City, Philadelphia the project often integrates the historic backdrop within its framework.
RENNY MOLENAAR «Lighter Statements»
In THe BaCKRooM
«My use of discarded lighters to make «Lighter Statements» on all black American tactical military flags, are my attempts at story telling. All objects have memory and meaning… and lighters are funny like that… the petro, the colors, the fire, hand to mouth, hand to mouth… The touch, the words, the pictures, the objects, the symbols…The stories are not mine and the meaning of life is not political… and the black flags…» RM
