Opening Reception – Figuratively Speaking
October 10, 2019
Common Space Gallery presents Figuratively Speaking, an exhibition by Peter Stevinson and Louis Trujillo. The exhibition will be open from October 10 – November 1. Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, October 10, from 5-8 PM.
Figuratively Speaking explores the role empathy plays in the politics of gender.
After witnessing the tragic events happening to women in the world, Peter Stevinson decided to create a drawing reimagining DaVinci’s The Last Supper, focusing on the empathy he felt for the women in these awful situations.
Growing up surrounded by demeaning remarks about his preference for activities usually assigned to girls, Louis Trujillo was taught to think less of himself. Over time, he has been able to change that energy, finding empathy towards himself that granted him comfort in his identity.
Food for the opening will be provided by Damaris Ronkanen, owner of Cultura Chocolate. Cultura has been creating in the Maker’s Kitchen at Art Gym for three years, and we are thrilled to celebrate their success opening a storefront at Re:Vision in Lakewood.
