Eye to Eye presents portrait work by local artists Ruth Chase, Dee Anne Dinelli, Claudia Jeffers, Giulia Sbernini, and Alicia Vandevorst that explores how we look, our vantage points. The pieces in this show develop that theme in several directions, addressing how to see the integrity of a life, retrospectively and in the moment, in the spheres of social justice, psychology, and philosophy. All five of these artists are especially excited by the sort of looking that helps each person to accept and welcome what is or has been, even what might seem unpleasant or disturbing at first glance. They are interested in what brings us 'eye to eye'.
Dee Anne Dinelli's photographic portraits of homeless folk reflect the humanity and dignity that lies beneath the trauma of homelessness. She is a founding board member of Sierra Roots. We hope to see you at the artist reception on May 6th!
