Ner Shalomer Evri Kwong is one of three artists featured in this museum show, “See Something, Say Something”. While the phrase originated to convey the threat posed by terrorism after the 9/11 attacks, in this exhibition the meaning of the phrase “see something, say something,” is expanded to encourage individuals to call out additional threats to society such racism, sexism, economic disparity, and climate change.
The three artists in See Something, Say Something, David Huffman, Evri Kwong, and Linda Vallejo, are observant and they are vocal. Through their work, they identify and name dangers, approaching social issues with intelligence, sincerity, and wit. In this, they provide a community service, identifying important issues that affect us all.
At this meetup, Evri will take us through the exhibit and lead us in discussion about the art and the issues it invokes.
Evri received both his BFA and MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and received a fellowship to study at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. A recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Grant, his work has been featured in solo exhibitions across the country, including the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica, Dwight Hackett Projects in Santa Fe, the deSaisset Museum at Santa Clara University, San Jose Museum of Art, Alternative Museum in New York, Heidi Cho Gallery in New York, Gallery Godo in South Korea, Gerald Peters Gallery in San Francisco and New Mexico, and the Catherine Clark Gallery in San Francisco. Evri currently teaches at Napa Valley College.
