By Krystal DiFronzo Tara Booth’s work is an assertive clash of color that depicts the most humbling and sticky situations.

Here, the elastic and orthogonal planes […]

Welcome back to Wednesday’s new series, THINKS to Think.  What follows is the second transmission — authored by David Hall.  David is cool.

TOP V. WEEKEND PICKS (2/16-2/22)

Each of the four artist in this exhibition articulate a unique relationship to this motif – in proximity to […]
