Piecing It Together- Opening Reception

When: 
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Piecing It Together

Piecing It Together features works by Danielle Kimzey, Mary Laube, and Christopher Reno. These three painters share an interest in exploring the constructed idea of ‘home’ and seek to demystify, through their abstract works, this insular domestic space. This collected body of work draws upon the artists' experiences of parenthood and memories of home, and reveals those associations considered as often banal or overly sentimental.
