“Safe Space” LGBTQ Exhibit in Jackson Opens Friday, October 25

“Safe Space”—an art show highlighting the experiences of the marginalized and disenfranchised opens at the AmadorArts Center in Jackson Friday, October 25. With over 30 artists, “Safe Space” serves to bring new opportunities for understanding the value of diversity in our rural community, specifically LGBTQ+ individuals and their allies.
Produced by the Amador County Arts Council, the non-profit organization has collaborated with Tri-County LGBTQ Alliance, Amador PFLAG, NorCal Mental Health America, Amador County Suicide Prevention Coalition (SPEAK), Sierra Wind Wellness and Recovery Center, and Blue Mountain Coalition for Youth and Families. Supportive grant funding has come from a California Arts Council “Local Impact” grant.
Friday, November 15th from 4-7pm will be the free Public Reception which will include music by Marilyn Shrouf Williams, light snacks, and performance artists. Come and see the courage and beauty of rural queer communities captured in art.
The location is in Jackson, CA at 617 South CA-Hwy 49 in the Mother Lode Plaza, and the open hours are Monday-Friday, 2:00 to 6:00 pm. The “Safe Space” exhibit will run from October 25th through December 20th, closed for holidays on November 25-29. Contact info: (209)256-8166 or email cynthia.amadorarts@gmail.com.
