ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
Portraits of Trinity... documents the members and volunteers of the Trinity Center in Walnut Creek. Through this exhibition we hope to bring to light issues of homelessness that effects members of our community, create a space where a dialoge can take place surrounding this topic, and offer ways to reach out and help those in need.

Trinity Center is a non-residential program serving homeless and working poor adult men and women in Walnut Creek and Central Costa Contra County.

ABOUT JORDAN:
Jordan Rose Jurich-Weston is an artist, photographer, builder, and traveler. Born in Berkeley, raised in Santa Cruz and settled in Oakland, California, the SF Bay Area plays a major role in her art practice. She received her BA in Art from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2009, and her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 2016. She currently teaches classes in photography and digital media for Chabot College, Solano College, and the Center for Community Arts in Walnut Creek.

Her art practice centers around creating portraits that strip the artifice from everyday life–telling true stories of the human condition. Present both in her portraits at Trinity and her ongoing project Home in Light/Dark, Jurich-Weston looks to complicate the ways we see one another. In her practice she uses images, video, and installation to lay bare an intimate view of family and home, and in this, reject the silence and secrecy that perpetuates stigma around mental illness, aging, love, and loss.
