Target Gallery’s popular annual exhibition and art sale, March150, returns. Proceeds benefit Target Gallery’s special exhibitions and programs.

Ah, Love….what do you think about it and how does it show up in your life? Not only with a significant other, but with your family, friends, and other loved ones?
WellBeing, Inc., has invited me to present this free creative workshop for women to develop daily affirmations to help re-affirm thoughts and beliefs about love….self-love and love of others in your life. I believe that what you think about yourself can potentially re-wire connections in your brain leading to more fulfilling life changes. I am looking forward to sharing some things I am learning to help change negative thoughts into positive ones, and call in the love we all deserve.

Reimagining Rosa Parks Exhibit
April 28-July 3, 2014
Prince George’s Community College
Rosa Parks’ refusal to yield her seat created a clear and defining moment toward the pursuit of racial equality in the United States, and nearly 60 years later that act of civil disobedience carries a universal legacy. Reimagining Rosa Parks, examines and reimagines Rosa Parks' identity and Civil Rights legacy as applied to contemporary Civil Rights issues.
The exhibition was inspired, in part, by the Book Bridge Project and its selection of Jeanne Theoharis’ The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks, which describes a different Rosa Parks—one who was keenly aware of how to engage in civil disobedience to provoke change.
Artists included: Nava Atlas, Aileen Bassis, Sharon Burton, Laurence Chandler, Drew Costley, Carl Ferrero, Charles Mason III, Becky Nasadowski, Beverly Paul, Anthony Tremblay, David Willison, and Malandela Zulu.
Rosa Parks 7053 was exhibited at this show.
