Donna Burch's phothgraphs will hang in the Ethical Society Gallery from March 15 through April 21, with a reception on Sunday, March 17, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. The Ethical Society of St Louis is Located at 9001 Clayton Road, St. Louis, 63117. The Gallery is open weekdays from 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday mornings.

Donna says of her work:"This show is designed to create conversations about what it means to be an American and how others view you as an American (or not). It is not about the political party to which you belong. It is about how we view ourselves and others in relationship with our country"

The portraits were created using an overlay of the flag. Donna had poems and conversations with her subjects and used the overlay as a statement of the feelings each subject had about their citzenship and hopefulness of their future in the nation. "If the conversation was hopeful, the flag was placed in an upright position. If the conversation was not hopeful the flag was place a distress signal...What we all agree on is that there is a brokenness in our land."

This is a thought provoking show, sure to bring about conversations regarding our lives as Americans.
