and Natalie Ergas will be showcased in the Overture
Center’s Gallery II Dec. 10 through March 1.
A preview explains: “Natalie Ergas, Yongchul Kwon and Jerry Jordan explore different facets of human identity. Ergas uses collage to capture the essence of individuals, focusing on female strength and stories. Kwon is a sculptor who interrogates the role of anonymity within society. Jordan’s paintings celebrate wokeness in defiance of ancient beliefs fueled by fear, hate, and cruelty.”

In the Overture Center's Galleries I, II, and III, a total of seven artists explore themes of identity, social context, and creative process.  A reception for all of the artists will be held Friday, Jan. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Overture Center’s four galleries create a forum for diverse artistic expression that fosters the growth of local artists, curators and arts organizations. Three galleries radiate off Rotunda Lobby and the Playhouse Gallery serves as lobby for The Playhouse Theater. Overture Galleries are free and open to the public.
