GALLERY TALK: PAPERWORKS
Please join us for an informal gallery talk for the Paperworks exhibition. Guests will participate in a walkthrough of the show, where the juror, artists, and others in attendance are encouraged to make comments, ask questions and discuss the work exhibited in the show.
The Paperworks exhibition explores a wide range of 2- and 3-D pieces on paper, as well as mixed media works which incorporate paper.
