UPCOMING SHOWS:

 

The In-Between Spaces
Riverfront Library:  January 6 – March 24, 2022

This exhibit features the works from artists who are exploring and innovating in the most dynamic ways, new techniques and practices with everything from fiber arts to assemblage and even climbing silk cocoons. The works in this show demonstrate unique and inventive uses of traditional materials in very nontraditional ways and the incorporation of materials that one might not ever expect to find in an art gallery.
