The Greater Erie Alliance for Equality (GEAE) would like to thank all the artists, our jurors, patrons, and the Erie community for making this first art exhibit a success.

Over 40 pieces were submitted and 15 were selected to represent the emerging voice of LGBTQ artists and three were chosen to receive an award to help propel their work even further.

The closing reception for the month-long event brought artists in from Cleveland and Chautauqua Institution, in addition to those right here in Erie.

A special thank you to Hrag Vartanian and Sharon Louden for jurying this show and exhibition. Your expertise and insightful comments encouraged new artists to continue their work and inspired established artists to reach ideas.

Congratulations to Gwen Singer, Paper Buck, Karen Bradfield for lending their incredible voices to this movement.
