The Vilna Shul will host a unique photography exhibition presenting the work of professional Beacon Hill photographer Brenda Bancel and her students Toni Marie Gomes and Roody Jean Louis from the Take 5 program at the Epiphany School in Dorchester. These photographers focus on exploring ways to raise our consciousness of deeply rooted stereotypes.
The exhibition will give the viewer the rare opportunity to rethink and thoroughly learn about what used to be taken for granted. The work aims to challenge the viewer’s set thinking patterns and cognition of various objects, and eventually disrupt assumptions, shaking the viewer out of conventional thinking to stop perpetuating ideas from the past.
This event also will enlighten and motivate the viewer to explore and embrace the diverse perspectives and ideas that are unlike anything they’ve previously noticed, as they accept into their lives someone or something new every day.
Join us for the opening reception, followed by a Q&A with the artists.
The exhibition is being showcased at the Vilna from Sunday, April 29 to Friday, May 25. Join us to view the exhibition during this timeframe on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Sunday from 1-5 p.m.
