THE AMENDED SOCIETY: TRAINING A GENERATION explores the concept of gun rights, gun control, mass shootings, and their
implications on America’s cultural identity. The iconographic imagery creates a language that questions and attempts to decipher the cultural impact of violent events on our society. The exhibition opens with a reception on September 9, 2021, from 5pm to 7pm at PaperWorkers Local, 2717 Seventh Avenue South, Suite 203, Birmingham, Alabama 35233. The exhibition closes on October 9, 2021. Our regular gallery hours are Saturdays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Masks required. Image: Locked In, archival pigment print, 44” x 24”.
