Parallels Art show

Niki Lopez & 1310 Gallery presents:


Paths diverge, yet we co-exist.

 Parallels group art exhibit presented by Niki Lopez

Look at the world we live in. Our simultaneous existence as a generation binds us together, yet we each diverge on different paths.  Our journeys are unique and diverse, yet we co-exist… close in proximity, yet distant, living and transitioning, breathing and traveling together as an expression of the collective self.

The artists in PARALLELS visualize how they are part of a generation that is free to roam and find one’s own particular destination of infinite possibilities. The artists work makes you pause and observe the beauty in the contrasts that connects and divides us as a community- truly unified not only by our similarities yet by our divine right and responsibility to create and evolve differently as individuals. They are inspired by the freedom of being who they are meant to be.
