FORT LAUD­ERDALE, Fla. – In the spirit of em­brac­ing in­di­vid­u­al­ity and ac­cept­ing the dif­fer­ences of oth­ers, ArtServe presents the in­au­gu­ral “True Col­ors” ex­hi­bi­tion, which opened Oc­to­ber 5 and will run through Novem­ber 4.

The multi-me­dia art ex­hi­bi­tion kicks off with a free gallery re­cep­tion tonight, Oc­to­ber 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at ArtServe 1350 E. Sun­rise Blvd. in Fort Laud­erdale.

The re­cep­tion will fea­ture a tra­di­tional Mex­i­can dance per­for­mance from Jim Ham­mond’s Florida Day of the Dead Festival along with food, mu­sic and an On­line Peo­ple’s Choice Award.

“True Col­ors” dis­plays more than 120 pieces from 60 lo­cal artists in ex­plo­ration of iden­tity and di­ver­sity along all spec­trums, in­clud­ing works on LGBTQ is­sues, First Amend­ment rights, race and eth­nic­ity, women's rights and more.

Fea­tured in the show is ArtServe artist-in­res­i­dence Lori Pratico, whose work with Girl No­ticed speaks to women's em­pow­er­ment and in­de­pen­dence.

“At such a tu­mul­tuous time in our na­tion’s so­cial and po­lit­i­cal cli­mate, we thought it was im­por­tant to put to­gether an art ex­hi­bi­tion that em­pha­sizes the im­por­tance of be­ing true to one’s self while also re­spect­ing oth­ers from all walks of life,” said ArtServe Pres­i­dent and CEO Jaye Ab­bate.“’True Col­ors’ is an op­por­tu­nity for artists to make bold state­ments, dis­pel mis­con­cep­tions and let their true col­ors shine through.”

ArtServe gallery hours are Mon­day to Fri­day from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ad­mis­sion to the gallery is free.
