Crossing Borders exhibition resonates with immigrant crisis

PAWTUCKET – Crossing Borders, a group-focused exhibition curated by Judith Tolnick Champa and Jocelyn Foye, will premiere at Periphery Space Gallery, 80 Fountain St., with an opening reception on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition will run through Oct. 14.

Resonating with the ongoing immigrant crisis internationally, the exhibition features works by 10 contemporary artists producing “remarkably expressive work in various forms and formats,” states a release. Taken together, the work concerns personal feelings of loss and gain, separation and hybridity.

The talented and multi-generational artists selected for Crossing Borders draw upon specific and diverse cultural origins that they integrate into their work.

The first iteration of the exhibition in Pawtucket will be followed by additional variations in other Rhode Island venues to be announced.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment.
