|Art In FLUX brings UPTOWN downtown at RUSH Gallery with an all-women show for the month of March. REFRESH presents a women's perspective and their innate compulsion to create safe, peaceful and equitable spaces. As women they seem inclined to address problems by first reflecting inward … and then projecting outward as a united cohesive force, apparent at the Woman’s March and other recent public forums of solidarity.
Alicia Grullón, Aya Rodriguez-Izumi, Elan, Leslie Jiménez, Rejin Leys, Shani Peters, Sui Park and Suprina each approach the topic in a unique way, directly addressing the current state of affairs, and responding in a personal and passionate manner. The artists present a deep emotional connection to their communities and the propensity to internally absorb the trials and tribulations of family, friends, community and world news, thus needing a momentary escape, a REFRESH button. Through their artwork the artists analyze disparities, injustices and suffering. They create environments and experiences that challenge the status quo. They listen, comfort, embrace, and absorb the pain. They REFRESH and face the world again.

THRU: MAR 24, WED to SAT 12:00-6:00PM
FEATURED ARTISTS: Alicia Grullón, Aya Rodriguez-Izumi, Elan, Leslie Jiménez, Rejin Leys, Shani Peters, Sui Park and Suprina
