Artists: Eras Gallery and Art

artists: We're not really supporting folks who have grown up with tons of privilege, for whom art might just be an interesting intellectual pursuit, explains creative director Jason Samilski, according to NOW Magazine. There's an urgency to the realities and identities of the artists we support, and when that art gets produced we see a really powerful result. The Margin of Eras Gallery launches its first exhibition on November 24 with 11 artists whose works span issues including Black masculinity, immigration and migrant work, mental health and economic marginalization. A specific curatorial theme hasn't been imposed on the inaugural show.

Instead, the artists are all CUE funding recipients, which ties their participation together. ( As reported in the news.
