October 7 to November 20, 2022 Gualala Arts Burnett Gallery Curated by Mirka Knaster and Paula Haymond, Gualala, CA All kinds of creatures migrate, sometimes thousands of miles over land, through the sky or deep waters. Yet, barriers keep animals from roaming and individuals from crossing borders or entering harbors, denying refuge, often to those who need it most. Some factors push us out of our homeland and other factors pull us into another territory. Those factors range from civil war, genocide, terrorism, gang violence, ethnic/religious/political persecution, environmental disasters leading to drought, famine, and loss of land to the simple desire for new adventures and opportunities.
