For the fifth year in a row, the artists of Durham's Pleiades Galley are banding together to bring attention to issues of social justice in Truth to Power 5. The exhibit's title was inspired by a 1955 Quaker pamphlet, titled "Speak Truth to Power," which promoted alternatives to violence. Local artists working in flat and three-dimensional mediums were invited to submit pieces to curator Pedro Lasch, a Duke professor, artist, author, and art juror, who selected several dozen. "Dogma," a mixed-media piece by Marnie Blum, brings focus to religious tolerance; Malcolm Goff's digital drawing "The More Things Change..." adds a historic twist to an infamous image taken at a Baton Rouge protest. After this Third Friday reception—which is held in conjunction with an open mic, hosted by Kai Soulfire, across the street in Five Points Plaza—the exhibit runs through August 6. Xernay Aniwar
