Curated by Virginia Fabbri Butera and Will Suarez, this is one of two paired exhibits conceived as part of LatinX ConeXiones, a project of the nearly 30 cultural organizations in the Arts & Culture Collaborative.

The Collaborative is showcasing the arts and culture of Latinx artists in Morris County and other communities through more than 26 performances, fine art and craft exhibitions, music, dance, literature, poetry, theatre, food, history, installations and other creative disciplines through November 2019.

The events, which will take place in venues across Morris County, can be found online at https://artsandculturecollaborative.org, www.facebook.com/latinxconexiones and https://www.instagram.com/latinxconexiones/.

For the Gallery at 14 Maple, the Exhibition Committee and curators selected works created by 21 artists (paintings, watercolors, mixed media, prints, photographs, digital art and collage) for display at the Gallery, a distinctive space located on the 3rd floor of the LEED certified “green” building at 14 Maple Ave., Morristown.

“This is a wonderful chance for people to learn more about how our Latinx neighbors are responding visually to their myriad experiences in the United States as someone who is a recent newcomer or someone with deep roots here,” said curator Ginny Butera.
