Banjara Textiles and Jewelry from the Jerez Collection 
July 14 - September 11, 2022

 The Jerez Collection of textiles and jewelry, handcrafted by the Banjara peoples of India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, was lovingly assembled over the years by Sherry McDonald Stewart, Daphne S. Nallie, and Daisy S. Gill. A small but stunning selection from the collection is on display in this exhibit.  “Banjara” is an umbrella term used by outsiders to describe multiple formerly-nomadic peoples living throughout India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, who are descended from a single group but now vary in language, in cultural norms, and in name, depending on where they live. There are an estimated 5.6 million Banjaras in India. The Romani of Europe also are believed to be descended from Banjara ancestors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Towards a 21st Century Abstraction
July 14 - September 11, 2022

 Towards a 21st Century Abstraction is a group exhibit of contemporary American Abstract-Expressionist painters, organized by the artists themselves. The collection is made up of seven artists working in studios across the country. Their paintings have been exhibited and collected extensively across the United States and internationally. They include: Sammy Peters, Katherine Chang Liu, David Bailin, Connie Connally, Jeri Ledbetter, Brad Ellis and Doug Trump. In a period of art that values reproducibility, speed, and spectacle, these seven artists find a common ground and belief in the unique, the contemplative, and the inventive use of their materials.
