Second Street Gallery is pleased to present "Community Lost & Found", a solo exhibition featuring new paintings by Christina Flowers, on view in Second Street Gallery’s Dové Gallery from May 6 - 27, 2022. The exhibition opens on Friday, May 6, 2022 from 5:30-7:30PM. The exhibiting artist will be present in the gallery during this opening evening to chat with attendees.
"Community Lost & Found" invites viewers to consider how we re-connect and create community as we emerge from separation. Flowers’ hard-edge abstract paintings are a study of the intersection of voice, energy and passion that form the pulse of community.
In early Spring 2022, Flowers invited the community to engage in a call for written responses on considerations of connection and togetherness in times of separation. Deriving inspiration from the responses, this body of work aims to encourage connection and discussion through interaction with the exhibition and viewers within the gallery space. Titles pulled directly from community response and paintings juxtaposed with writings create an immersive experience that allows viewers to question their ideas of community and to form thoughts on what it means to them moving forward.
This exhibition is generously sponsored by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and an Enriching Communities Grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF).
