Organized by Wayne Adams

Equity Gallery presents Peaceable Kingdom, a group exhibition organized by Wayne Adams, featuring the work of Wayne Adams, Doug Ashford, Brent Everett Dickinson, Michelle Mackey, Steve Prince, Kenneth Steinbach, and Michelle Westmark-Wingard. The seven artists within the exhibition are responding to Peaceable Kingdom, a series of over 100 paintings titled by the nineteenth century artist and Quaker minister, Edward Hicks. Where Hicks’ paintings each revolve around a singular composition and theme, the works in this exhibition offer a unique and contemporary interpretation of a “Peaceable Kingdom.”

Much as in Hicks’ time, the population of the world is inundated with a staggering volume of tumultuous news involving political and cultural conflict.The wake of the worldwide turbulence provides the motivation to reconsider the need for a new “Peaceable Kingdom,” or, in other words, artworks that aim to fight injustice, heal festering political wounds, and forge a better tomorrow through the near spiritual power of the image itself. The artists within Peaceable Kingdom grapple with and examine the possibilities and limitations of the visual arts within a political sphere.
