ALEXANDRIA, VA, November 2014 – Convergence is proud to announce an exhibition
from artist, Pamela Flynn titled Considering Harm focusing on the issue of gun violence
in our communities. Each piece is a small, mixed media, contemplative work on gun
violence. These works, paired with text about incidents of gun violence in the DC Metro
Area, work together to create tension forcing the viewer to consider harm.
Considering Harm is traveling through major US cities. Each time Flynn tailors the
exhibit to fit the particular location drawing attention to the harm gun violence brings to
individuals and communities. The work has been exhibited in NYC, Philadelphia,
Frederick, Maryland and now The Gallery @ Convergence, Alexandria, VA.
About the Artist, Pamela Flynn – Pamela Flynn is a visual artist and art educator
living and working in New Jersey. Flynn received her MFA from New Jersey City
University and is a professor at Holy Family University in Philadelphia. Flynn has
received the Puffin Foundation Grant and has exhibited her work extensively
throughout the United States. Her work is grounded in issues from living day to day,
seeing the visual word as a mirror of human priorities, she uses digital images and
snapshots as a starting point in her work in an attempt to initiate a conversation on
what Flynn calls the “inherent responsibility that goes with living.”
