Join us for the opening of this powerful exhibit! Mingle with guests, nibble on Indian food, decompress, and nourish your creative spirit. Deborah Johnson and guest artist Ria Manzanar will lead art activities, flower garland-making, chanting, mediation, and journal prompts.


In this exhibit, Brighton artist Deborah Johnson curates an interactive installation featuring bright and joyful linocut prints, paintings, and visual affirmations within a lush open living room space. As a queer South-Asian artist and mental health professional, Johnson connects her personal ancestry and spirituality to create a place of comfort and sanctuary for all. Visitors can drop by to reflect in a journal, view the art, gather with friends, or engage with the community altar.


RSVP for free!


Optional: Please bring something to leave on the community altar, such as pieces of nature, photos, or art.


*Open to all regardless of spiritual affiliation. The exhibit is based in cultural practices rooted in India and yoga.
