This Winter: Spaces of Belonging 

Jan. 26-March 25, 2023

Reception with artists: Saturday, Feb. 11, noon-2 p.m.

Sumi Bepp"Spaces of Belonging" features artwork by four local artists: Frances Paragon Arias, Ellen Bepp, Ted Fullwood and Flo Oy Wong. Each has been instrumental in creating "spaces of belonging" and inspiring new beginnings through their community-based work and art.

Artwork on display includes hand-cut paper "poems," large-scale abstract ceramics and woven sculptures, a nature haiku installation inspired by a local school garden, and silkscreen prints about indigenous ceremonies and social justice issues.

This exhibit is presented in conjunction with Silicon Valley Reads and its theme: “Journey to New Beginnings.”
