Join us Saturday, February 1, at 5:00 PM, for a celebration of our spring exhibitions. Mary Weatherford: Canyon–Daisy–Eden presents a survey of Weatherford’s career, drawing from several distinct bodies of work made between 1989–2017. Between the Mountains brings together contemporary artists who depict Chinese landscapes through the medium of ink. Elevator Music 40: Melissa Thorne — Landslide/Solid combines interior design, hard-edge abstraction, and narrative pop to create a unique listening environment in the Tang’s elevator. And Nicole Cherubini: Shaking the Trees draws upon the architecture of the Tang’s mezzanine to create a new community space for conversation and contemplation.

Before the reception there will be an artist talk with Mary Weatherford and the co-curators of Mary Weatherford: Canyon–Daisy–Eden, Ian Berry and Bill Arning. Both events are free and open to the public.
