About the Show
In their exhibition "Holding on to Tradition: A View of Changing Cultures," photographer Barbara Michael and painter/photographer Evin Leek explore cultural changes in pre-war Yemen and post-war Guatemala. Through paintings, photographs, and displays of traditional clothing, these artists offer a view into the daily lives of two unique cultures. Although they are geographically distanced, both communities share a common desire to preserve fading traditions. This exhibition tells the stories of survivors, and gives insight into the challenges they face on the brink and in the aftermath of tragedy.

Artists Candy Pegram and Kirah Van Sickle are opening Insider/Outsider: Art Two Ways in WHQR's MC Erny Gallery on Friday, 8/26 as a part of 4th Friday Gallery Walk. These 2 very different artists decided to have an inspiration for each piece of art in the exhibit and each make a piece based on that inspiration.

Pat Marriott spoke with the artists behind the work in our latest MC Erny Gallery exhibit, Paper & Paint.  Kathy Stovall (collage, monoprint) and Joan McLoughlin (acrylics) discuss their work and inspiration.  The exhibit is open for viewing weekdays, 10:00 am-4:00 pm, plus a special 2-hour opening on Friday, December 11 from 6-8 as a part of the Holly Jolly Holiday Stroll.
