RESISTANCE Gallery Opening at Merseles Studios (April 13 7-10 PM)

Is resistance only the refusal to accept the status quo? Is it just an outgrowth of an individual’s struggle for justice? If resistance is necessary for change to be made, does resistance to change always prevent progress? Come celebrate the opening of the new gallery, and the beginning of our season, both on the topic of Resistance. Paul Di Zefalo (event image)
