    Join us @yellowhouseart on November 17 anytime between 12-8pm for the opening of Piercing the Veil: Works by Thony Aiuppy. The opening day coincides with CoRK Open Studios. Both are events not to miss.

    I started researching and uncovering truths that had been hidden concerning racism and discrimination in America, predominately in the South. Digging deeper, I examined myself: where I fell short, harboring wrong ideas and slanted opinions about people who have been oppressed for hundreds of years…I became awakened to the blind spots in my life.” – Thony Aiuppy

    Through paintings, collage, and sculptures that simultaneously conceal and reveal, artist Thony Aiuppy makes visible his role as witness to our collective histories. Drawing on years of authentic relationships, education, voracious reading, and self reflection, this body of work lifts up the share cropper, migrant worker, factory machinist, artist, and activist into iconic images demanding our recognition.
