Evelyn Patricia Terry as a Portal Wisconsin blog contributor writes: Shana R. Goetsch's intense and provocative pieces, including 4,000 individual prints of row houses on one sheet of paper, challenge us to visually and emotionally connect to 4,000 victims of domestic violence.

Exhibition running August 6th through August 27th with gallery hours:
Thursday 5:00pm - 8:00pm and Saturdays 12:00pm – 5:00pm

Shana R. Goetsch's work frequently involves themes of social justice, empowerment, love, loss and bereavement. Often using words, cultural references or found objects, she injects personal voice and history into her work. Row houses are the subject of her newest pieces, and part of her continued goal to fight domestic violence pictorially. In three suites of images, Goetsch aims to portray the ...long-reaching effect of domestic violence (DV) in our neighborhoods, and the way in which our broader culture minimizes the effects of violence against women. Even though the row houses are seemingly silent and static buildings, they embody the "souls" of those affected
by violence.
