- "Shelter": August 1-30, 2023 Ossining Public Library Gallery, Ossining, NY
“What happens when the roof over our head disappears?
Where do we go to seek shelter when the shelter won’t hold?
How do we protect each other when the ocean has come into our living room, bedrooms, clinics, courts and all the sanctuaries that are rightfully ours?
Where is the safe house for our fragile hearts when the house is on fire?” ~Beth DeWit
