The exhibition is composed of paintings, not in one theme or style, but with multiple series of paintings in which various styles and themes exist happily and cohesively in the same space informing and conversing with one another.
Date/Time: Tuesday, July 10 6-8pm. The show will be on view during library open hours through August 30, 2018.
