The portraits are hanging at the lovely Abington Arts Center

The Abington Art Center Dining Room Gallery and adjoining room are the last stop for the second edition of the Souls Shot portrait exhibition. As we installed the portraits one of the visitors to the center stopped to watch and realized he knew one of the people represented. As Movita Johnson-Harrell frequently points out, this epidemic reaches far, even to the bucolic setting of the suburban Abington Art Center.

We are looking forward to the panel discussion as part of the Art Center’s “Coffee Break” series on October 12 from ten until noon. There will be coffee and bagels served and a panel of artists, a gun violence victim, and representatives from gun violence awareness groups.
