Garry Grant
My abstract paintings are inspired by world affairs, the evolution of our culture, society’s idolization of material wealth, and human relationships, including the relationship that we have with ourselves. In addition, I often contemplate the sustainability of our planet, the consequences of our behavior on nature, and the importance of music in nurturing our souls.

Curator Walk for Healing and Community: Physical to Virtual

RSVP on Eventbrite for Zoom link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/curator-walk-for-healing-and-community-physical-to-virtual-tickets-103483102746?fbclid=IwAR2pRaRohKt1aLRcPtOYGmSmYgTmQs5C_J3IO2-BQuJrC53NTb7dvcocL-A

NoMAA PRESENTS THREE ONLINE EXHIBITION ROOMS
“Healing and Community: Physical to Virtual,” curated by Patricia Miranda.

THE GALLERIES:
Reflection: Art of introspection and meditation;
Connection: Art that links the self to others;
Community: Art as action.

Art weaves threads of connection across otherwise robust boundaries. These connections translate into actions that ripple out into the world as culture, through art that reflects, critiques, and celebrates the complicated world we live in.

In a time of social distancing, art brings us together. We sing across balconies, dance across computer screens, paint and post pictures of the mundane and the extraordinary, the tragic and the comedic. Art connects us when we cannot physically be together, and reminds us of the bonds that make us a community.

CURATOR:
Patricia Miranda, a long-time resident of Washington Heights, is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and educator, and founder of MAPSpace project space and The Crit Lab, professional development and critique for artists. She creates objects and installations using found textile, books, and paper, altered with handmade natural dyes and pigments as form, process, and ecofeminist action.
