FORM & VOID is our second exhibit in our “YIN & YANG: A SEASON OF CONNECTION & BALANCE” exhibits. FORM & VOID includes a diverse selection of work from 24 artists from all over the country. By displaying a collection of perspectives on a common theme, the exhibit offers a unique cultural and educational experience, which creatively illustrates the diversity of the human condition. Sculpture, oil, mixed media and silkscreen are just a few of the art mediums represented in this exhibit.
Our art talk, “The Evolution of Social/Political Artwork in the context of FORM & VOID,” will take place on Saturday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m., and will be given by the artist Robert Markey.
