FREE Opening Reception: 5-7 p.m., Friday, September 8

Carrie MaKenna explores The Universal Circle through painting, sculpture and play. Whether we are aware of it or not, we experience it through the cycles of a minute, an hour, a day, a month, a year, a decade, a lifetime. We live momentto- moment within the influence of The Universal Circle.

 

MOSTLY WHITE
November 10-January 7
FREE Opening Reception: 5-7 p.m., Friday, November 10

This exhibit explores what is left blank by design and how the power of white sometimes complements, completes or is the design. White is also where the observer can rest and fill the space with their own thoughts thus completing the work.
