The Art of Struggle

Episode 55: Today I talk with Sonya Pfeiffer,  the new owner  of the Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art about her fabulous Art of Struggle exhibition, which features the art of MyLoan Dinh, Charles Farrar and Susan Brenner.

I was able to actually go to the gallery to see the exhibition for myself.  This emotionally charged show literally brought tears to my eyes as it shows a unique take on the nature of struggle and the beauty that can result.
