Words from Kay Belardinelli about their gallery show titled “The Man Shall Be Judged” – “The man shall be judged. the man shall submit. his tongue shall fall silently from his mouth. his mireful heart shall crumble. his limbs shall spread so wide they snap. the sclera of his eyes shall wither and go black. his skin shall burn and shrink beneath the strength of the sun, flaking and falling to the earth as ash. the clothing of the man shall be shredded and torn. all shall be removed and destroyed. the man shall surrender all he imagined himself to be. the man shall become but dirt beneath my feet. this earth shall grow strong. this earth shall rise and take what once was, to make it what it shall be. so be it.”
Words from Carlos De La Rosa about his gallery show titled “Under The Surface” – “Immigrants/ immigration has been a looming story on the screens and air waves in our lives for the past few years now and unfortunately, mostly the narratives have been negative, for example they are gang members, killers etc. With this project I intend to showcase all types of stories of immigrants who have come here looking to live better and fuller lives as well as giving their kids better lives and opportunities. This project has been a way for me to get closer to my roots and learn about why and how my parents and family migrated to the United States, as well as the struggles they had to endure in a new promising land.”
