In the Know: a time to heal, learn, and empower

In The Know is an event with two goals. The first is to create a common knowledge of not only how to prevent sexual assault, but also what to do in the case of sexual assault. The second is to create a healing space for those who have experienced sexual assault and to connect all people with the resources they need to prevent, prosecute, and heal from sexual assault.

SOLO EXHIBITION- "O: A Gemini trying to balance the poles"

to Mar 16

SOLO EXHIBITION- "O: A Gemini trying to balance the poles"

  • Edmonds Community College- Lynwood Hall: Art Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, Feb 16, 3:00-5:00 p.m.

The “O” exhibit is a visual representation of the energy, frequency, and vibrations within the Universe that unites us all. Hamer uses acrylic paints, glass, and mirrors to present a path that encourages the viewer to find answers to the age old questions within oneself: Who am I? Why are we here? etc. Through research of ancient, esoteric spirituality and traditional religions, Aramis is displaying her works inspired by concepts found in her meditations and dreams. One of Hamer’s influences said it best: “When artists give form to revelation, their art can advance, deepen, and potentially transform the consciousness of their community” - Alex Grey

Viewing Time Windows at the Art Gallery in Lynwood Hall (3rd Floor through the library)

  • Monday-Thursday: 7:30a-9:00p
  • Friday: 7:30a-2:00p

The Trill Effect: For the '99 and 2000s

The Trill Effect: For the '99 and 2000s

Trill Effect is back at it! This time, we're taking an introspective look at the messaging behind the media of the late '90s and early 2000s. 

In "For the '99 & the 2000s: A Reflection of C.R.E.A.M." be prepared to reflect and dissect the Bling Era in this multi-disciplinary art exhibit. See the bare hues hidden behind the platinum picket fence...the weakened enamel behind a glistening gold grill...and the price of naivete and nostalgia. 

With new creations from A.O. Hamer, a short film debut from Kamari Bright, and live performance pieces from Blu the Baqi, this exhibit will challenge everyone to examine the themes that were bombarding music, television, and other media during that time. 

Roll through.

"For the '99 & the 2000s: A Reflection of C.R.E.A.M"
