WAVELENGTHS

“Wavelengths” serves as a celebration of the achievements of our graduating painters of tomorrow. It is a coming together of a diverse array of artistic styles and sensibilities. Most of all, it is a clear illustration that though we may take our creative impulses in different directions, we are always on the same wavelength; that of innovation, expression, and community.

“Wavelengths” is running from January 22nd-30th in the Gales Gallery.
