First up: our final Open Exhibit of the year is juried by painter Robert Yi, who selected 66 artists and artworks from the hundreds submitted.

In the solo room, painter Dennis Crayon unleashes his trompe-l’œil paintings, which “fool the eye” into seeing photographs that are really painted. These works start with real-life photographs that the artist extrapolates into nostalgic scenes for “That Which Was Once Whole.”

“That Which Was Once Whole”

The opening reception for both exhibits is this Thursday, December 8, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Please join us!
