(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / March 25, 2019) - Modella Gallery is pleased to present Collective Voices exhibit which highlights the work of 14 artists expressing individual truths and finding the synergy that can emerge through collective action and collaboration with others. The exhibit runs April 18th- May 25th with a reception on Thursday, May 2nd. 

This exhibition emphasizes the power of sharing commonalities, traumas, and triumphs of the human experience. Using a variety of mediums and materials, artists in the exhibition have created literal and metaphorical visualizations that emphasize the power of art to give voice to their stories, provoke questions, address silence, and create solidarity.
