Artwork that comments from both sides of the aisle
Art is a colorful tool that allows us to highlight social injustices, propose new solutions, and show us what our world can become. The Santa Fe-based Gallery Fritz has made it its mission to showcase a rainbow of views and artistic voices. The space’s latest exhibition, “The Audacity of Art,” brings together the work of 12 politically diverse artists including John Yoyogi Fortes, Dorielle Caimi, Victoria Carlson and Ben Steele, who each address a different issue such as race, environmental challenges and immigration.
Gallery director George Brugnon told Observer, “Our hope with this exhibition is that our community will see that art can be a way to start a conversation and not to be so focused on the tribal mindset.”
Beyond exhibited artwork, the gallery is also hosting political talks related to these topics, with politicians from both sides of the aisle who will speak to the relationship of politics, culture and art.
“The Audacity of Art: Art for the Midterm Elections | 12 Artists Get Audacious Across the Political Spectrum” is on view at Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe, New Mexico from October 26 – November 26.
