February 15 – March 16, 2019
OPENING PARTY: FRIDAY FEBRUARY 15, 6-9 PM
Each year, on a rotating basis, the Art Center presents a media-focused exhibition as part of our Art Now series. This year’s fifth annual exhibit features innovative work in painting.
This exhibition highlights artists who employ traditional painting techniques, as well as those who move across disciplines and push the boundaries of what defines contemporary painting, including through the application of hybrid processes and use of mixed media.
