Main Gallery – Shannon Holland
Shannon Holland is an emerging artist in her field of study contemporary expressive representational art. An avid philanthropist using art for social awareness, and self-expression. Her style amplifies both the beauty of the work itself and the message represented. Themes of transparency, women’s rights, sexuality, and social and political issues that affect a number of individuals in society are brought to light through her work. She interacts with a multitude of degrees of life, drawing inspiration from all. Portraying struggles through her art in an attempt to change anxiety, and fear into something not only beautiful, but also thought provoking.
Sam Frazer age 86 was born in Brooklyn, NY and attended the High School of Industrial Art in Manhattan.

Sam first exhibited his oil paintings in Queens College in 1977 -- then was forced into a decade’s long hiatus while he was a caregiver for his ailing wife. He has now revisited his lifelong passion via drawings, paintings and cartoons. It has also been a mission of his to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive via his art.
"Invoking one's soul onto the canvas always presents a formidable challenge to me." ` Sam Frazer
