New York-based artists Zorawar Sidhu and Rob Swainston in conversation about their exhibition, Doomscrolling, currently on view. 


An addictive compulsion, doomscrolling is described as the act of spending an unintentionally excessive amount of time actively seeking out and reading negative or depressing news online. In this series of 18 woodblock prints, Sidhu and Swainston culled imagery from the mainstream media to depict 18 moments between 24 May 2020 and 6 January 2021. The date of each work is tied to now-iconic images and specific events, and altogether form a portrait of the United States during the time of Covid, Black Lives Matter protests, the events leading up to the 2020 election and the infamous day of the insurrection at the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.

The Reading-West Windsor Community Resiliency Fund (RWWCRF) is an evolving initiative developed by the Reading-West Windsor Food Shelf, in response to regional flooding in July 2023 and financial needs that emerged as a result of the devastation. The vision of the RWWCRF is to promote healthy, resilient and caring communities by providing responsive support to residents of Reading and West Windsor who are experiencing serious disruption or challenges to daily life. By marshalling and coordinating the resources of multiple organizations and services, the RWWCRF hopes to reduce barriers to seeking and receiving help. Support domains include, but are not limited to, housing and transport, food security, financial support, physical and mental health, social spiritual connections and child care/senior care.


Each free ticket grants admission to our galleries from 3pm for self-guided visitation of our exhibitions, and to the concert starting at 4pm.
