June 14, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A juried exhibition acknowledging the cyclical phase of transformation between the relinquished end & the revived beginning. By exploring energized peacefulness & embracing duality, we are able to find solace in the pieces of the present.
The works presented in this exhibition, showcase submissions from both emerging and professional artists from the local community and beyond; hand-selected by our juror, Shannon Rose Moriarty.
