Offsite Gallery opening reception "Foreign Bodies" by Rowena Federico Finn
Saturday, December 2, 2023
Join Norfolk Arts as we welcome local artist, Rowena Federico Finn, for her solo exhibition at our Offsite Gallery at MacArthur Center.
By combining indigenous Filipino materials such as piña cloth, sinamay, and capiz shells with art materials she’s used for decades, Finn explores her experiences as a Filipina-American, caught between two different worlds, unearthing the generational scars of colonization and assimilation. Through the tactile nature of her work, Finn seeks connection with those who find themselves caught between cultures, highlighting the complex emotions associated with fitting in or standing out within the tapestry of communities that do not always welcome uniqueness.
