We wanted to give the young artists a chance to see their work on our walls. We also wanted to give the community a chance to see their work. We also will be displaying a mural outside the gallery created by Jon Box.

10 patrons at a time, 6 feet apart , and masks are required.

For the health of all our patrons, we will follow CDC guidelines. Only a limited number of people will be allowed into the gallery at a time. Social distancing and masks will be in effect. Be well, everyone. We will see you soon.

The theme “I am” came from a concerted effort to provide a framework while still giving the young artists flexibility in their work.

We hope this is just the beginning for this exhibit. While it is a small show, it will most likely garner more support as the youth programming continues to move forward. EAG and GEAE want our queer youth to know that there is always a space for them at the table.– 

Last year Greater Erie Alliance for Equality and the
Erie Art Gallery had the first ever LGBTQ art exhibit that was successful. One of the things we learned from that experience was that there were a number of young artists that also wanted to participate. We decided that we need to fill that gap, based on that feedback.

GEAE is the sponsoring organization for all the LGBTQ/Queer youth activities and programs.

We hope this is just the beginning for this exhibit. While it is a small show, it will most likely garner more support as the youth programming continues to move forward. EAG and GEAE want our queer youth to know that there is always a space for them at the table.

Attention: The current show is brought to you online. Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, we dont want to silence these voices.
