Title About this exhibit
Formation

November 2, 2018 - March 7, 2019

Formation is a theme that can be taken in many different directions: biology (the formation of plants), craftsmanship (forming pieces, how we make things), forming ideas, geographies, personal narratives and histories, and how our histories help to inform the work we make as artists.The possibilities really seem endless.
