Our WeSpoke Gallery Talk Series continues Thursday, Oct. 21 with a “fishbowl” dialogue with three exceptional Boston artists: Peggy Woods Doherty, John Provenzano, and Shea Justice, whose “Scrolls of Justice” on view here will serve as background and inspiration.
The Gallery Talk begins at 6 pm and will be presented in person and via Zoom.
“Shea’s powerful scrolls are a threshold through which we can explore the many ways our lived experiences shape artistic vision, whether through drawing, dance, painting, or music,” says Michael Dowling, SPOKE Artistic Director. “Each of these artists has both a history with our organization and with the South Boston neighborhood that’s our home. And each of them has both used those experiences as creative material, and transcended them in their art in different ways. I can’t wait to hear these artists open themselves to one another and to the larger SPOKE family, through this dialogue.”
SPOKE works alongside artists whose vision and creativity build bridges, heal division, and drive social progress. The “WeSPOKE” series of virtual gallery talks explores the intersections of art, health, race, climate, and recovery, with emerging and established artists from across Greater Boston. These talks began in May and have included artists Amanda Shea, Oliver Burns, Allison Maria Rodriguez, Franklin Marval, and Carolina Aragon, among others.
