{CLICK ON THUMBNAILS TO PREVIEW}                                                                                                                                                                                                            This exhibition is Meghan Willis’s embroidered homage to Gilbert Baker’s original Pride flag. When Meghan (they/she) came out as Non Binary they created these portraits as a love letter to the LBGTQ+ community that embraced them. Most of the works focus on Trans and Non Binary folks, each lovingly hand embroidered. The work is arranged in 8 color groupings showcasing the original flag’s colors: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue and purple. Portraits are predominately based on self-portraits by the muses, capturing them as they wish to be seen.
