"PARADOX" opening reception is Saturday, June 2, 5:30-8:30 at our gallery in Hyde Park. In the spotlight for this all-member show are airy and graceful sculpture by Carl Grieco and beautifully detailed watercolor and pen and ink by Mona Burkard.They'll have their own featured space to display their art in their own way, in their own shows as they choose.
Our other members will show you their spin on Paradox: a statement that appears to contradict itself and yet may hold a deeper truth. Let's see if we can find out in our group show that explores this interesting idea. “Paradoxically though it may seem . . ., it is none the less true that life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”(Oscar Wilde) Refreshments will be served. Please join us! Free as always. Ending July 29.
