My oil on linen painting “Kamala at Howard” was inspired by the young Kamala Harris as an undergraduate at Howard University in Washington DC. The images of Kamala as a member of the influential Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority bring a smile to my face. Finally it seems that Generation X will have a place in the upper reaches of the executive branch as Kamala is fighting to become the first woman to be Vice President. Coming from a family with a Black father originally from Jamaica and a mother originally from India, Kamala will also be the first person of Asian and Black ancestry to be VP. Having lived in San Francisco for a number of years, I was fortunate to be able to vote for Kamala in every one of her political races – from San Francisco District Attorney, to California DA, to Senator from California, and now as Joe Biden’s running mate. Ï’m Speaking”, Kamala said as she was interrupted at the VP Debate on October 7, 2020. I know that she will speak for all of us in her exciting future!

“Being Well” is what we seek together as neighbors, and recalls one of the central guiding principles of the City of Santa Monica, the notion of “wellbeing” as key to civic health. Recovery Justice: Being Well, aims to highlight the recent circumstances that have evolved during the pandemic (racial justice demonstrations and destruction, as well as social discontent and general disconnection) into a series of self-organized artist projects that merges the exterior and interior public spaces of City of Santa Monica property. 18th Street Airport Campus at Santa Monica Municipal Airport will be the site where artists reimagine the city and beyond in the midst of complex social unrest globally. Recovery Justice will recuperate through various means the digital and physical footprints left in a city that struggles to reclaim the seemingly peaceful environment it once had. Artists will develop a palette for making and sharing artworks responding to the street experience in safe, healing and expressive modes. This porous series is a point of departure to reconcile and redefine the concept of justice.


Public appointments to visit the galleries will open March 29, and will end July 2, 2021. Appointments are available Monday – Friday at 10am, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. Please visit https://yearofwondersredux.eventbrite.com to sign up for an appointment.


The exhibition is open by appointment only. Each time slot can accommodate groups of up to six individuals. All visitors are expected to check in at the front door, wear masks, and maintain a distance of 6 feet at all times from others who are not part of the same family group. Please do not come if you have any symptoms of illness.

America’s Sons: From Ferguson, to Baltimore, to Minneapolis was inspired by Langston Hughes, Nikole Hannah-Jones, and Black Lives Matter — my painting turns a spotlight on the stories of young black men who face racial profiling, harassment, and often death at the hands of police in the US.


From meditations on memory, investigations into the warped passage of time, working through fraught familial relationships, and grappling with fear and longing in a time of public health crises and inequities laid bare, the artists in this show address our current moment both obliquely and directly, with humor, melancholy, and uncomfortable propositions. Creation during this time feels nothing like luxury; rather it is deeply necessary in navigating the darkness ahead.
