Portraits of First-Generation Identity in Higher Education

The lives and experiences of students, families, faculty and professional staff who identify as first-generation are the subject of increased attention in higher education across the United States. The success of programs, initiatives, and interventions mostly focus on measurable student “outcomes” but may often miss the complicated narratives of aspiration, sacrifice, accomplishment and identity work first-generation students, families, faculty, staff and communities navigate.  Portraiture can make visible the triumphs and challenges of being first in the family in higher educational spaces.

Call for Art | Stepping Out | Online Exhibition

Stepping Out: An Exhibition Celebrating Creativity and Originality - Gallery Omata invites artists of all levels to showcase their true expression with an open theme exhibition that empowers artists to push beyond their comfort zones and reach a wider audience.

Call for Art | Games We Play | Online Exhibition

Gallery Omata announces a call to artists for an online exhibition.

When we see the play bow of our canine companions or hear the urging of children to 'come & play' we are reminded to let go of our serious side for a time and let loose. For this exhbition we are giving you permission to ‘go play’ and free your imagination to express itself with creative abandon.

Each artist compels the viewer to feel the moment just as they themselves do sharing in the pure joy of expression. Simple choices such as a colourful colour palette transform a serious subject into a lighthearted one. Lifting the spirits in the process.
