Strength of Character Exhibition

March 14 - April 28

Free

Experience an environment curated by Katherine Gibson where visual and physical weight converge in a symphony of artistic expression. This exhibition will feature large-scale paintings by Edgar Sanchez Cumbas, elegant sculptural wood pieces by Kathleen & David Bly (Jib Projects), and site-specific installation and assembled objects by Kendra Frorup.

Step into a realm where the strength and character of the exhibit – both visually and structurally – is conveyed through the placement of chosen materials to not only enhance the character of each object and artwork but to create an impactful whole. Everything influences everything else.
