learn about the artists being exhibited and support them by embracing
their art into your lives.

between the artists and you, the patrons, especially between those from
the Dominican Republic and Haiti as we will be visiting these countries and
bringing back art periodically throughout the year.

of Pascal Giacomini.
Con Con Patois – Con Con the good stuff at the bottom of a pot of rice
(Dominican style). Patois - any language that is considered nonstandard,
it can refer to pidgins, creoles, dialects, and other forms of native or local
speech - class distinctions are embedded in the term, drawn between those
who speak patois and those who speak the standard or dominant language
used in literature and public speaking.
