Jonathan Hopson presents This Paradise opening reception
In celebration of Houston Pride and in remembrance on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Jonathan Hopson presents This Paradise.
There is no paradise that compares to the one we must create. We often conceptualize paradise as palm trees, blue skies, and meditative playlists full of flutes and crashing waves. Yet many paradises exist: some are lush and pre-historic, others soft and heavenly like fresh cream or fuchsia plush toys, and then there are those paradises born of a treacherous sea, nursing both fantasy and necessity. This Paradise brings together four artists whose works encase the spirit of a utopia born from unlikely circumstances. Marking the 50 year anniversary of Stonewall all of these artists are in the community reflecting their own remarkable journey of defiance, individualism, and persistence in the glorious.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until August 4.
