The classes are for immigrant mothers living in CD38, SUNSET PARK. thank you to Carlos Menchaca for his support of the arts and our immigrant communities.
The workshop will focus on creating a vessel of the participants choice and process from hand building with clay, choosing a design and also glazing and bhisking their pieces until they are ready for full use. The class will help the participants find ways to relax and digest their lives, along with some sessions focussing on immigration law and rights of immigrants in this country. These workshops will be empowering women through knowledge of the law and also therapy of their soul.

Equity Gallery, 245 Broome Street, New York, NY 10002
On the occasion of this exhibition, Equity Gallery and MKS Press are co-publishing a monograph, Meghan Keane: Displacement, Desplazamiento. With essay contributions by critics Jill Conner (AS | Artists Studios, Whitehot Magazine) and Jonathan Goodman (Art in America, Brooklyn Rail), anthropologist Sebastián Ramírez Hernández (Princeton University), Carolina Rubio MacWright (immigration lawyer, political artist, Bogotá native) and site photographer Laura Moretti, the monograph situates Keane's paintings as powerfully humanizing gestures amidst the complex Colombian and Latin American socio-political landscape, in addition to positioning her firmly as a significant contributor to contemporary social practice discourse. Keane's paintings are indicative of a larger push by painters to re-value paint as an expressive and democratizing medium. Signed copies of the monograph will be available for sale during the opening reception and book launch on Thursday, March 10.
