Opening Friday, April 15th, from 6PM - 8PM
On view through Thursday, June 23rd
Join us for this exhibition of Jose Aleman Sasieta’s latest paintings, charcoal drawings, and watercolors. Aleman’s work incorporates multifaceted themes that go beyond Ezekiel’s Old Testament visions of Cherubim to include other secular narratives of drones as “angels” and the cosmos as part of contemporary human experience. Through themes of transcendence and destruction, Aleman asks us to ponder the current state of humanity.
