Signal Fires

Exhibition dates: March 16 – April 26, 2024

Gazala Projects, 101 E. Main Street, Gettysburg, Ohio.

Opening reception Sunday, March 17, 1-3pm


About the exhibition:

“An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.” - Nina Simone

“Art is always political. To anesthetize your work is, in fact, a political statement. And in this day and age, that means you’re affirming the status quo. ... It’s window dressing on the tyranny." -Josh Fox


Form does not exist outside of context. “Signal Fires” is a juried exhibition for regional (Ohio and Indiana) artists who have something to say about the world in which they live. Let’s talk about racial, social, environmental justice. 

Twenty artists explore topics from genocide to gender-affirming care, and take us from landfills to statehouses. Come experience what these artists are passionate about. Gallery open hours for the duration of the show are Sundays from 1-3pm. For visits by appointment text 216-571-7354.
