Zoetic: adjective zo-et-ic. Of or relating to life, Awake, Conscience, Viable, being animatedly existent
The Women's Art Resource of Minnesota (WARM) invites you to join us at the Robbin Gallery for our newest exhibit-Zoetic: Our Cumulative Legacy. The artists involved in this project were asked to respond to the last election. What has been brought to life over the course of this election? What has been awakened? How is it affecting art and the creative process? What is now in our consciousness? And what will we do about it? How will we be animatedly existent?
Zoetic-Our Cumulative Legacy runs from January 5th through the 28th at the Robbin Gallery Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 and Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Artist reception held on Thursday, January 12th 5:30 to 8:30.
In addition to the exhibit, on January 20th at 6:30 pm, a panel of community leaders will join us at the Robbin Gallery for a discussion titled “The Trump Trigger” about the political climate and how artists can come together to make a difference. What positive impact can occur through art and open communication?

WARM holds as its primary mission to empower and support all feminist artists by honoring the legacy of the past and by building a viable future. Created as a cooperative, WARM members support one another in order to bring women to the forefront of their local community.
