The O’Connor Gallery is pleased to present Jade Williams’ solo exhibition Semine Ab Aetherio.

Semine Ab Aetherio, From the Heavenly Seed, is an offering into William’s world-building practice as she sows the spiritual, cultural, and familial seeds of her upbringing as a means to restore inner world order. Combining material explorations and personal artifacts, the  exhibition invites viewers to question, meditate on, and care for our roots, relationships, and rituals; ultimately, prompting them to return home with her and with themselves.
