From climate change, health care, tax cuts, Muslim ban, women’s issues the March for Science, No DAPL, Education, Air Quality, GMOs, and our relationship with the rest of the world! “We had an overwhelming response from artists across the country,” said Margery Goldberg, founder of Zenith Gallery. “The enthusiasm for this show by artists and art supporters has offered one of the best mix of mediums we have seen in a juried show of this nature in years.”
