    Offsite Gallery at MacArthur Center

    Join Norfolk Arts for an opening reception: May 20, 5-7pm. Cognition Transmission: Pass It On, a solo exhibition by April Taylor-Martin, Senior Supervisor of Art for Portsmouth Public Schools. "As an artist, mother and art educator, many parallel concerns have emerged. Through my artwork I am asking the following questions: What is passed on? What transcends our lives and persists in our children and in future generations? What words, moments, and relationships inform our consciousness? What is the role of compassion in education and creativity? These questions are existential and as such are best explored in artwork with open ended interpretations. Through the process of teaching and creating art I have found that compassion and connection to others allows the transference of thought and meaningful understanding of the world."
