Event Description

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents an exhibition of works by Connecticut artists Sharon Butler and Geoffrey Detrani at Gallery 195 at First Niagara Bank, 195 Church St., 4th floor, New Haven. The exhibition will be on display during bank hours from September 14 through December 9, 2011. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13, from 5 to 7pm. The public is invited to attend.

 

The exhibit will feature paintings by Sharon Butler and Geoffrey Detrani.  The artists vividly render their works from Detrani’s energetic, linear “imaginative landscapes” to Butler’s juxtaposition of brilliant color against stark backgrounds.

Class Warfare on Earth and in Heaven

The term “class warfare” today is used in many ways: to describe the power dynamics of politics and economics, to refer to any resistance by the “have-nots” that calls attention to inequity, and to refer to the ways the “haves” keep the “have-nots” powerless and resourceless. These tensions are reflected throughout the Bible, and it is crucial to understand them to read the Book knowingly and advocate for social justice in our communities.
