Judy Schott Under Shelter: The Power Within
Metro Gallery in City Hall host new work by local artist Judy Schott. Under Shelter: The Power Within features 25 portraits of people living in family shelters run by Volunteers of America. Each image is accompanied by a short story from the individuals.
“After years of feeling “invisible”, seeing themselves in a photograph, strong and dignified, was powerful, overwhelming and resulted in conversation, laughter and sometimes tears. Many said they would send the photographs to family members; most said they did not have photographs of themselves.” – Judy Schott
Judy Schott is a Reno-based photographer who has been working on this project with Volunteers of America for the last three years.
Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 to 5:00 PM
