I saw a call for art from Bitfactory Gallery in Denver, Colorado who asked for work created during the eventful past year as a way to build a collective story and learn about the experience of others. As you know, I just finished a series about this timeframe, so I submitted my work. I am honored they selected one of my pieces, “May the Things We Burn, Light the Way”, to be in the show. While my work was inspired by photography I took in Portland, I love that this new series reflects on issues that affect all urban areas. Entries were curated by juror Amy Métier and the selected works will be displayed in a group exhibition of 2-D artwork called Viral Hope from August 20 – September 9, 2021.
They are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 am to 4 pm for the run of the show. Also, work can be viewed and purchased online at www.bitfactory.net
