Next Upcoming Date: Wednesday, Oct 17 2018
The LH Horton Jr Gallery at San Joaquin Delta College is proud to present “Queer Voices”, an art exhibition featuring works of art reflecting LGBTQ+ culture.
October 11 – November 2, 2019
The Queer Voices Exhibition is curated by Kirstyn Russell – Professor of Photography and LGBTQ+ Pride Club advisor for San Joaquin Delta College, and Jan Marlese, Horton Art Gallery Director. The exhibition explores LGBTQ+ culture, history, and social constructs to bring greater awareness and understanding of LGBTQ+ culture and expressions of gender identity. Selected artworks have a wide range of content – socially, politically and culturally in representation and perspective – to create an active dialogue to the intersectionality of LGBTQ+ identities. Presenting high quality works of art in a variety of mediums was also key to the selection process. Included are works of ceramic and quilted sculpture, paintings, digital photo-graphy, printmaking, graphic arts, comic art, and video animation. Exhibiting artists are professionals artists primarily from the Bay Area, with one artist, Celine M. Pham, from Stockton and a Delta College student.
