What Love Looks Like: Sisters

New Beginnings Barbershop & Gallery
1047 Hollins St., Baltimore MD, 21223
November 1 - December 31, 2015

What Love Looks Like: Sisters portrays a relationship between sisters touched by mental illness, addiction, death, and love. The exhibition illuminates what is gained from empathy and connection rather than stigmatization and separation— the benefit of "us" versus "us and them." Cheryl Maxwell, Founding Executive Director of the Carolyn Anne Foundation and sister to Carolyn Anne Watts, shares luminous paintings by her sister, bringing awareness of mental health issues to the public. Art by Colette Veasey-Cullors, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) Professor of Photography, documents Cheryl and her commitment and dedication to her sister while also examining the complexities of their relationship.

Partner: Carolyn Anne Foundation
