The Visceglia Gallery at Caldwell University is pleased to present:
“Haiti: 01-12-2010 We Remember”

The Visceglia Gallery at Caldwell University is presenting “Haiti 01-12-2010 We Remember”, an exhibition curated by AYITISTIK, a group of Haitian-born artists who have been deeply affected by the earthquake that devastated their homeland four years ago on January 12, 2010. Their powerful artworks confront hardships and the unsettled aftermath of that event. The devastation of their homeland cannot be forgotten. Consisting of more than 30 works by established artists, including painting, mixed-media, collage and metal sculptures, this exhibition offers an honest and compelling response to Haiti’s ongoing predicament.

The exhibit runs from January 9 to January 24, 2014. An opening reception will be held January 12 from 3 to 7 p.m.

“Haiti 01-12-2010 We Remember” honors a country that was taken by surprise when an earthquake hit and is a reminder of what happened and of how much needs to be done to prevent such a disaster from occurring at such a magnitude in the future. Hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives during that tragedy.

Artists featured in this exhibition include: Jerry M.C. Georges, Jean P. Blaise, Mona Coichy Haigler, Jean Richard Coachy, Francisco Gervais, Joseph Thony Moise, and Jean Claude Dominique.
The Visceglia Gallery will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For all appointments call Jean Claude Dominique at (862) 250-4393.
