Rhythm – February Gallery Exhibition

February 4-29, 2020

Opening Reception- February 7, 6-8pm

Rhythm can be auditory, but also visual.  It moves us – drawing the eye around a composition and our bodies around a room.  It can be subtle, soothing, overwhelming, agitating or somewhere in-between. We asked artists to play with rhythm and see what patterns unfolded. This show will include 2D and 3D work in ceramics, metal and wood. Artists who will be showing in the gallery for February include Nancy Houfek Brown, Lissa Gray, Pippa Arend, Alan Root, Elena Weisenburger, Peny Wallace, Jennifer Foran, Cheryl Quinana, Eileen Wold, Jennifer Kapnek, Stephen Kekule, Sheila Delaquil, Gabriella Kirby, Kit Garroutte, Carrie Larson, Barbara Martin, Eric Miranda.
