They/Them Project

They/Them Project is an ongoing podcast and photo series, giving gender nonconforming individuals a platform to be seen and heard, while educating all who listen about gender diversity. The project also gives us a chance to educate others by sharing the interviews through social media. The series is produced by Minneapolis-based celebrity and commercial photographer, Brent Dundore, originating as a way to document his journey as a cisgender person educating himself and challenging his own ignorance of gender.

A Conversation Between Artists
Featuring works by
Pamela & Frank Gaard

This exhibit features a wide variety of works by dynamic duo Frank & Pamela Gaard. Their vibrant paintings explore humor in both subtle and obvious ways through portraits, figures and everyday life. Franks pictures are cartoon-like depictions of life, usually in fluorescent colors. Pamela’s abstract and language-based works explore time, memory and healing, and are meditations on everyday life — mnemonic “prayers” of emotion, experience and events often quite private in nature.

“Our collaboration allows us to bounce ideas back and forth, and in this exhibition you will see that occasionally authorship is blurred a bit – but seamless, creating a fluidity which is ours, and unique to us as a couple. While we don’t always agree, we can both often find humor, even in darkness. Humor is the glue which keeps us together.” – Pamela Gaard

Exhibit on display at both the Sabes and St. Paul JCCs
This exhibition is part of the 10th Annual Twin Cities Jewish Humor Festival.
