Clamp Light is pleased to host “Crossing Borders”, a postcard show and fundraiser for RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services). “Crossing Borders” seeks to celebrate the immigrant spirit that is part of the American story, raise awareness about the immigrant and refugee crisis, and strives to help those affected. Postcards are a symbol of travel and can provide cross-cultural connections between friends and family abroad or even closer to home. Through this exhibition and in collaboration with RAICES, Clamp Light hopes to support a cause that deeply affects our community while connecting individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Artists are invited to submit postcard sized works (4” x 6”) to be exhibited at Clamp Light for the month of June. Drawings, poems, photographs, sketches, etc should be sent directly through the mail as a postcard, allowing its journey to make its mark on the piece. Each piece will be photographed and included in an on-line archive as it arrives in the gallery.
