Cathy Cahill: MEMORIES and FAMILIAR SPACES

Cathy Cahill's opening reception drew a huge and lively crowd on a very hot Thurs evening Aug 11. Looking at a single piece is like reading a novel . . . so much narrative to ponder. To look a second time is an experience akin to re-reading: you always see something you hadn't noticed before. Despite a wine shortage, many pieces were sold! 

Scenes from Artists' Talk on July 10 2016

The discussion with our three artists from the "Constructs and Structures" show was a perfect way to end this fascinating exhibit. Quite a range of people attended, and it was great to have everyone there introduce themselves after Courtney Jordan, David Lang, and Stacy Latt Savage each spoke about their work--what an accomplished group in attendance!
