The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Family Reunion: Psyche, Spirit, and Humanness, in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery. The exhibition is curated by Debbie Hesse and Matt Reiniger. There will be a public reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 10. The works will be on view to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday from March 11 – April 29, 2016 at the gallery located at 70 Audubon Street, Second Floor, New Haven. There is no fee. The show features artists Shaunda Holloway, Joey Loos, Fethi Meghelli, Annie Sailer and Josif Zlatnikov.

Family Reunion: Psyche, Spirit, and Humanness brings artwork together that examines our individual and collective memories of human ancestry imprinted and visually represented as faces of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, husbands, and wives. It is a recollection of the wondrously strange and familiar. Family Reunion is a homecoming—a celebration of our identity understood beyond language and reason.
