Queer Conscience Art Gallery

Opening Reception 

The LOFT, curated by our very own Resident Artivist Sphynxx, is thrilled to present a powerful exhibition titled "Queer Conscience" at the Bethany Arts Community (BAC)!


What is a Queer Conscience?

It's that inner compass, that guiding voice that shapes our sense of right and wrong, but filtered through the unique lens of LGBTQIA2+/ Queer experiences. It's about grappling with societal pressures, celebrating our chosen families, and fighting for a world that truly embraces / celebrates authenticity and uniqueness.

"Queer Conscience" delves into the powerful concept of the inner compass, often recalibrated by societal norms and expectations. Navigating a world that often clashes with their core identity. Through various artistic mediums, the exhibit promises a journey that is both introspective and defiant.

Join us as we celebrate the complexities of the LGBTQIA2+ experience and the unwavering strength of our community's moral compass.

Expect a diverse range of works that challenge, inspire, and spark conversations. Witness how artists navigate the often-conflicting messages of their inner truth and the external world.

Expect to be moved by:

*A diverse range of artistic mediums, from thought-provoking paintings and sculptures.
Works that explore themes of identity, sexuality, gender expression, social justice, and the ongoing fight for equality.

*A space for open dialogue, connection, and celebrating the creative spirit of our community.
Whether you're an established artist or just starting out, "Queer Conscience" welcomes your voice!

Stay tuned for:

*Westchester Pride June 2nd, 2024 find out more info at The LOFT table and say Hi to Sphynxx!

"Queer Conscience" is for everyone. Whether you identify as LGBTQIA2+ or are an ally, this exhibition is a powerful opportunity to witness the artistic voices of our vibrant community. It's a chance to celebrate our triumphs, grapple with ongoing struggles, and foster a more inclusive future.
