Black river (by Charles Edward Williams)
August 12-September 20
Reception: September 12, 5-7:30 pm
Black River presents deeply personal works by artist Charles Edward Williams, including paintings, photographs, ready-mades, and videos, that chronicle familial strains, spiritual rebirth, and personal struggle.
At the age of 15, Williams witnessed his father’s spiritual transformation. This conversion, which ultimately landed his father behind the pulpit, also caused Williams to reevaluate his past relationship with his father and its impact on his own spiritual journey. With Black River, Williams seeks to reveal his own history through metaphorical narratives and modern parables that collectively reference a profound act of forgiveness shared between father and son.
