A powerful exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Ricky Romain and related text assemblages/books by Heather Fallows. The work of both artists is inspired by human rights issues, focusing on the themes of asylum, sanctuary and immigration.

Ricky has been an artist for nearly 45 years, working with pigments and glazes that he mixes himself, as well as Indian ink, paint and gesso-primed canvases to create a surface that can be scratched into. For the last 17 years, he has become preoccupied with humanitarian causes. His work has been exhibited in galleries nationally and internationally, including the International Secretariat of Amnesty International and the European Council of Human Rights building in Strasburg.

Heather Fallows is a freelance artist who works with a variety of materials and found objects to create assemblages and text-inspired works. She is interested in the origin of language and the genesis of its meaning and formulation, and often uses poetry to inspire her work.
