Patricia Talbot -African Metal sculptures.

For ages, water has been the primary element used in religious rituals all over the world.
In some 
cultures ceremonial water immersion is the vehicle that transports people to
a place where they can communicate directly with God.

“This exhibition takes a closer look at how water rituals connect with Spirituality and community around the world, beginning with the Fire hose Baptism in Harlem to water rituals in Varanasi India.
Now more than ever, the cultural connections present in Harlem are important to
recognize as our community is changing.”
