EXPOSED: Artist Talk
Strivers Garden Gallery
Chuck Prescott, 'Dream State,' 36" x 36"
EXPOSED: An HIV Coming Out Story through Art.
Artist Chuck Prescott will be talking about how he came to painting and his experience of living the past 25 years with HIV. The talk will focus on why he chose to work for so long in black and white and why he chose to end the exhibit in color.
This exhibition bravely chronicles Prescott's personal journey and struggle of living with and coming to terms with HIV over the past 25 years. He tells his authentic story through his 10 contemporary paintings on canvas in black and white acrylic. The second part of the exhibit is his experimental period moving from the past and bringing vibrant color and play into his future.
"Only after 25 years of soul searching, therapy and gradual self acceptance, I am starting to see the light again," says Prescott.
