This group exhibition embodies all of the definitions for the word relay both noun and verb, a circuit opens another closes, information is transmitted….it is a visual conversation created through art. A call and response. To curate the works on view a finished piece by one member artist was passed along, in succession, to another gallery artist who selected a visual response with a work of their own, in turn passing it down the line. A visual community is manifested.  The concept of the exhibition runs in parallel with conversations currently occurring in the wider community about how to move forward in unity and strength through the currently charged political climate. In an effort to offer support to vulnerable populations, Kingston Gallery will donate their share of the proceeds from artwork sales during this exhibition directly to the Boston Medical Center Immigrant & Refugee Health Program. Boston Medical Center Immigrant & Refugee Health Program.
