Opening Reception for Erica Adams Art Show. Erica H. Adams (West Falmouth, MA, Preparative Meeting) has organized the first Quaker venue of traveling exhibition Respeto/Respect (2013) by the Chiapas Photography Project (CPP) in Chiapas, México. Her work includes educational materials that she created as part of her Legacy Gift (2017).

Respeto/Respect features photographs and trilingual text by seven Maya women from two different ethnic-linguistic groups and non-traditional religions who are staff of the Chiapas Photography Project, and demonstrates Maya religious diversity and coexistence after decades of strife in Chiapas, México; these are values shared in common by Quakers and Maya/CPP. Issues embedded in this exhibit include: indigenous and women’s rights and autonomy, post-colonialism, and decolonization.

The exhibit will be at Friends Meeting at Cambridge, in the Friends Room, 5 Longfellow Park, Cambridge, MA 02138, from January 3 through February 27, 2019. The Reception with a gallery talk by curator Erica H. Adams will be in the Friends Room, on Sunday January 20, 2019, from 12:15 through 3pm.
