Since getting a Masters Degree in art Yvette Weijergang has been working at numerous places mainly with adults as a teacher and a mentor. In 1996 she moved from Amsterdam to the United States where she continued her work in several art centers. The place which had the most influence on her own work was Interact a center for the visual and performing arts in Minneapolis where Weijergang worked with adults with physical and mental challenges.She experienced Minneapolis as a place so diverse art so pure and original.

11/9 was the morning after the 2016 US Presidential
Election and like 9/11, it was a flashpoint.

We tried “wait and see”. [NOW] is a time of alternative
fact, alternative right, alternative left, alternative
narrative, alternative government, and alternative
realities. [NOW] is a time of hacked elections, expanded
corruption, expanded wars, Rogue NASA, Rogue EPA,
banned peoples, and stripped rights. We have been
ignoring the real threats and fighting with each other.
This is our world less than one year after 11/9 dawned.
In light of what we know now, what do we do [NOW]?

Are we at rest?
Or are we like a “Slingshot” pulling back to ready itself?

We galvanize our voices in

Post 11/9 The New Now [Now] is a year-long traveling exhibition that gathers disparate voices of artists, activists, thinkers, and philanthropists together into spaces and conversations that move beyond fear of the
present to create a new [Now]. 

This engaging show features over 20 collaborators who refuse to be at rest during times of struggle. The collective includes Barry McGee, Rebecca Solnit, Paul Miller (DJ Spooky), Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Michele Pred, Liz Walsh, Matt Gonzalez and many more.

Individually these collaborators use diverse methods and mediums as visual and verbal language to help us all understand our role in both macro and micro conflicts and to invite generative resolutions to present dangers. Collectively, these articulated dreams, elegant metamorphoses, and unconventional abstractions are a statement of fierce hope that transcend the contrived scarcity of our current world in reductive, political, complex, and personal ways. 




The work I create is a reflection of the beauty I experience. I constantly seek to broaden the spectrum of what we understand, identify, and connect with as beautiful. Inspired by beauty, culture, history, science, mythology and experience. My work is simultaneously engaged in the now, then and still to come. The nuance of the creative experience, both the introspective and observed are an integral part of my process. Each piece is a dance between intention and intuition, a process of exchange, discovery and experimentation informed as much by the moments of their creation as the research that proceeds them and the engagement that follows them.


David Anthony Geary is a transdisciplinary artist working in a variety of mediums for the last 20 years. Culture and life experiences fill his work along with the discovery of newness. Constantly pushing, searching and discovering the new while at the same time holding on to the old. It's not just an aspect of David's art but an aspect of his character that finds its way into the art. Communicating his perspective of the world around him through a visual language, he became fluent in many dialects of visual art. His work incorporates painting, printmaking, collage, assemblage, sculpture or photography.The nuance of the human experience, both the introspective and observed are an integral part of his process.




I was born and raised in West Africa, Ghana but currently, reside in the United States. My practice aims to create genuine and authentic portraits of faces that make up the beautiful continent of Africa. I am interested in using my practice to reveal the hidden beauty woven into Africa’s social and geographical fabric. They expose viewers to a global perspective of the world, rather than a singular narrative meant to portray a viewpoint of the masses. My work reflects the diversity and richness lost in the deceptive mainstream representations of the African People and explores a self-referential perspective of the Black image. I develop this group of portraits through a vital practice that requires a physical engagement with the community and the desire to travel.

My work allows dialogues between America and Africa to emerge, reaching beyond the cultural orthodox and reversing the traditions of Western globalization.A uniquely vital aspect of my practice is rooted in travel, emphasizing a necessary demand for cultural exchange. This constant physical engagement is mirrored in my portrait paintings. They not only tell stories of the everyday African narrative but also investigate into the social historical paradigm of globalization as a visual dialogue. I infuse authentic mixed media materials woven into the fabricated esthetics of the portrait. I create a layering technique of combining African motif through silk screen and fabric. These materials become an anchored pillar that transcends the work through the everyday African cultural narrative.
