50 Reasons You Should See the Politically Charged Exhibition ‘Images of Power’

This month, Freight Gallery presents “Images of Power,” an exhibition of new work by 30 artists from across the country who deal with “current events, historical quandaries and the rising tide of fascism at our doorstep.” Guest curated by Alana Coates and Mark Anthony Martinez, it brings together a bold array of work and highlights several local artists, including Albert Alvarez, Juan de Dios Mora, Ashley Mireles, Raul Gonzalez, Kristel Orta-Puente and Jose Villalobos. In a statement, Freight owner Sergio Martinez said, “‘Images of Power’ establishes a dialogue that might at times be painful or difficult, but it is timely, meaningful, and worth having.” The politically charged show remains on view during Freight’s cafe hours (7am-2pm Tuesday-Friday) through February 24, with a gallery talk set for 6pm Saturday, February 24.
