Art Vacancy: Downtown at Nook and Nest in Ames, IA

A portion of the body of work on display was created throughout the last few months and includes series’ entitled: Oppression and Freedom, The Pandemic Series and Healing Landscapes. The incorporation of techniques and materials that Alicia hasn’t used before have helped her push new boundaries in order to help bring light to and restore so much brokenness around us.

When purchasing any of the work within the "Oppression and Freedom" series, 50% of the proceeds will be used to support Iowa BIPOC artists either through direct donations to an individual artist or organization or to purchase artwork created by BIPOC artists.
