The Search Within: Daughters of Diaspora is a group exhibit featuring artists Tya Anthony, Rochelle Johnson, Tracy Murrell, and Dawn Boyd. Each of these artists explores similar themes of race, gender, and humanity through figurative works. They express this content through different mediums and styles, including fiber, pop, painting, and photography. This medley of works comes together to form a unity that speaks one united message pertaining to these issues, yet each artist is distinct in celebrating their own individuality through personal style. Their works stimulate an emotional response through color, form, and medium, and are saturated with undertones of depth and meaning. Join us on December 7, 6:30-9pm and view the collection of artworks from this remarkable group of female artists.

Our guest lecturers for this exhibition will be Tya Anthony and Rochelle Johnson. Both are accomplished artists from Denver, Colorado. Anthony received her BFA in 2015 from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. She is an active member of TANK studios and is on the Advisory Board for Leon Gallery, and the Board for Tilt West. Rochelle Johnson holds a BA from Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design. The gallery talk is scheduled for 6:30pm. Anthony and Johnson will give us insights into the artistic decisions and creative processes that have led to this exhibition.
