REMIX: East-West Currents in Contemporary Art

A survey of recent work demonstrating cross-cultural influences

I recently met the young Vietnamese artist, Van Nguyen and was impressed by her poetic paintings. She is one to keep an eye on. The addition of abstract painter extraordinare, Paul Ellis to the mix will make for excellent viewing. I'm looking forward to this Season's opener and hope to see you there.
