NOVEMBER 18 – DECEMBER 8 – Bitfactory Gallery
Bitfactory gallery presents a new collection of AL Lummus’ powerful Mettle Martyr series. Like the first iteration at Bitfactory in 2020, Mettle Martyr Volume 2 is much more than an art exhibit. The goal of this show is to call attention to the existence and frequency of gender-based discrimination and abuse, educate about advocacy, and make a lasting impact on the viewer. The artwork features female models, some chosen for their survival stories, and some posed in ironic mid-century modern postures to reclaim their humor, beauty, mettle, and most importantly, their sense of self. A portion of proceeds from the show will be donated to The PorchLight Family Justice Center who will be on site during the opening to share information about their services. The public is invited to view the show at 851 Santa Fe Drive from November 18-December 8, 2022, during regular business hours Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30 am–3 pm, by appointment, and for the following special events: Opening Reception: Friday, November 18, 6-9 pm; First Friday Art Walk: Friday, December 2, 5-9pm.
