Barbara Kuzara – Silent No More

November 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - January 6, 2020 @ 4:30 pm

Barbara Kuzara’s powerful and passionate work will surprise and challenge you.  How did this exhibition come to be? From Ms. Kuzara:

The system failed to hear a woman’s story and believe her.   She was just one of many women who have experienced assault and are now speaking out.

I felt the need to speak up for these courageous women.   With this series, I wanted to honor the stories of the women who have spoken up.   I wanted to convey, in some way, the emotions of abuse & assault and the impact it has on lives forever.  I have lived it.

When the system fails, we must become Warriors for ourselves …… Become a Warrior. These are my Warriors.

I researched war paint colors and the meanings of the symbols used by the Cherokee Tribe and found the following I meanings which I used in these pieces.

White – Mourning/Purity

Black – Strength/Victory

Red – Energy/blood

Blue – Confidence/wisdom

Green – Healing/Harmony

Yellow – Determination

Handprint – the warrior has gone into hand to hand combat

2 stripes on right cheek – leader of the tribe

3 white dots on right cheek– indicates my tribe

  • Courage
  • Truth
  • Peace
