Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery is pleased to announcement its exhibit “Gun Violence in American” by Stephen McKenzie. McKenzie’s exhibit of large-scale prints combines text and image to tell a narrative of policy gone wrong. Policy that does not seem to have a hard solution, policy
developed around the misconception of the meaning of the Second Amendment. The solution, that is, to enact real change to gun laws, and limiting the impact of the National Rifle Association appears to be at an impasse no matter how many children, teenagers, or adults are
Stephen McKenzie’s work has focused on gun violence for the past 10 years. For his work he “uses statistics to chronicle the violence … The story of each survivor of those grim statistics is one of coping and living with a completely changed reality…” This is McKenzie’s method of
activism chronicling this form of terrorism and hoping for a shift, a change, in federal and state policy that seeks life.
All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. Gallery hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.
