Description:

Is the truth stranger than fiction? These emerging artists bring their interesting perspectives of a contemporary America.  According to Artist Henry Sandifer, truth happens at different points for all of us with a moment of clarity.  It's a significant moment in being able to speak truth to power. The images in his work juxtaposed on canvas tell truths via parables, allegories, suppositions and facts that are stranger than fiction.

Artist Nguyen Tran graphic designs tells stories about life he experiences around him and on social media.  His relationship with America presented in his work, takes different shapes, forms and images with vivid colors.  His political and social illustrations offer another way for us to reflect, to see the strangeness and to agree and find beauty in the differences.
