The L.H. Horton Jr .Gallery at San Joaquin Delta College is proud to present “Queer Voices,” an art exhibition reflecting LGBTQ+ culture.
The exhibition runs the evening of Oct. 11 through Nov. 2, with admission to the Gallery free and open to the public. Delta is at 5151 Pacific Ave., Stockton.
An opening reception will take place Oct. 11, with the Gallery opening its doors at 5 p.m. About 6 p.m. that evening, Delta drama students will visit and present a selection from “The Laramie Project,” an upcoming stage production.
The “Queer Voices” exhibition explores LGBTQ+ culture, history, and social constructs to bring greater awareness and understanding of LGBTQ+ culture and expressions of gender identity. Selected artworks have a wide range of content – social, political and cultural in representation and perspective – to create an active dialogue to the intersectionality of LGBTQ+ identities.
Presenting high quality works of art in a variety of mediums was key to the selection process for “Queer Voices.” Included are works of ceramic and quilted sculptures, paintings, digital photography, printmaking, graphic arts, comic art, and video animation. Exhibiting professional artists are primarily from the Bay Area, with one artist, Celine M. Pham, a Delta College student from Stockton.
“Queer Voices” is curated by Kirstyn Russell, professor of photography and LGBTQ+ Pride Club advisor for Delta College, and by Jan Marlese, Horton Art Gallery director.
In related news, “The Laramie Project” will be performed at the Alfred H. Muller Studio Theater at the Delta Center for the Arts from Oct. 19 to Oct. 28.
Exhibiting Artists include: Libby Black, Katie Gilmartin, James Gobel, Jamil Hellu, G.V. Kelley, Celine M. Pham, Queer Ancestors Project, Joey Alison Sayers, Buzz Slutzky and Jade Yumang.
