The Nave Gallery (Somerville, MA), in partnership with the Clarendon Hill Presbyterian Church invites artists to participate in the curated exhibition Truth Telling: Art in Search of Social Justice.
If we can’t see it, we can’t feel it. If we can’t feel it, we can’t know it. If we don’t know it nothing changes, and the suffering goes on. The visual arts have a unique opportunity to reveal the many injustices that prevent people and the planet from flourishing. Artists in all media are invited to submit images that show or comment on the violation of human dignity or environmental integrity that moves them to anger or compassion.

ABOUT THE CURATOR:
