Claire Desjardins will be showing select works at Sozo Gallery, along with two other artists. The exhibition runs April 3 until May 8, 2017.
My mother taught me how to be an artist, and how to think differently. Mostly, she taught me how to be free and how to remain true to my heart. I could do anything I set my mind to, she said. And as I aged, as my world morphed and I became more independent, I realized the importance her words; I also realized how important it is not to remain silent when I bear witness to injustices around me. It’s my duty as a daughter, a wife, a stepmother, a woman, to speak out for what’s right. I hope to pass along whatever joy I can, and to share in my inspiration, my nourishment. My mother's grace is with me, as I breathe in deeply, gathering stock of my surroundings.
