In the solo exhibition, “Cynthia Tom: Stories to Tell: Discards & Variances,” the Surrealist painter and mixed media artist focuses upon the tragedy of human trafficking through the personal experiences of her Chinese American family. Uncovering the disturbing details of her grandmother, father and mother’s lives spurred Tom to honor them through her work.
