Caldwell, N.J., Dec. 16, 2014 – Caldwell University’s Visceglia Gallery will present “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 five years ago on Jan.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, the exhibition offers a compelling response to Haiti’s ongoing predicament.
The exhibition will be on view Jan. 3 to Jan. 31, 2015. The opening reception will take place on Sun. Jan. 11 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 our brothers and sisters lost their lives not only because of the earthquake but due to a lack of Haiti’s preparedness, a solid infrastructure, and vision.” says artist, Jean Claude Dominique.
Artists featured in this exhibition include: Jerry M.C. Georges, Jean P. Blaise, Mona Coichy Haigler, Jean Richard Coachy, Francisco Gervais, Joseph Thony Moise, Jean Claude Dominique and guest artist Dominique Volcy.
The Visceglia Gallery will be open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm, Saturday 2pm – 5pm and by appointment. For all appointments call Jean Claude Dominique at (862) 250-4393.
