Pittsburgh, PA – The artwork of Donnie Toomer showcased at Pittsburgh GLCC.
The GLCC continues to showcase exciting local talent with Donnie Toomer’s psychobabble. Donnie will focus on world perspectives,coping mechanisms & our self- generated realities. The desire to be wanted and accepted is an inherent part of human consciousness, but how does one shape themselves if they only encounter negativity? The work will be a culmination of Donnie’s own exploring, self- depreciation and coping.
Exhibition runs from: Sunday February 5th to March 24.
Gallery Opening: Sunday February 5 6pm- to 9pm
