 All exhibition openings are free and open to the public.

Anna Velkoff Freeman, Shaping Earth
"Shaping Earth" emphasizes man's impact on the environment and describes Freeman's use of materials and process. Her use of stoneware and porcelain clay finely carved to reveal layers further echo the vulnerability of the earth.

Whitney Marie Rainey, Wunderkammer
Rainey's treasure trove of images are inspired by her fascination with American history and are monuments to the past. The characters that she is influenced by are surrounded by myth such as Amelia Earhart, Abraham Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth and Theodore Roosevelt. Rainey's process includes labor intensive traditionally feminine media, like embroidery and knitting, signifies a connection to hard working and obsessive personalities of the past.

Gary Garbett, insequentialsequence
Pop culture plays a distinctive roll in the mixed media paintings, photography and video pieces that Garbett creates. The influence of music, film, advertising and the evening news are clearly evident and serve as a wealth of inspiration for his prolific body of work.
