ARTstrology: Taurus

April 20 – May 20 Can’t you imagine stringing up a hammock in this lovely landscape? Of course YOU can, Taurus! You are a master of relaxation!

ARTstrology: Aries

March 21 – April 19 Like Aries’ symbol, the ram, you run headfirst into life. You’re relentlessly determined, but cheerful, which makes you a great leader. But be careful, great leader.

Your eternal optimism can be an inspiration to those around you and we love you for that. Just make sure to ground yourself every once in a while, if only to get a laugh at how seriously everyone else takes themselves. Piscis 19 febrero – 20 marzo Al igual

Up Close with Making Your Mark

The special exhibition Making Your Mark celebrates the power of surface and craftsmanship in authentic works of art. While these aspects of art are better appreciated in real life, the digital does allow viewers to get closer than you can in the galleries. Omid Shekari’s detailed drawings are set off by glistening, textural passages. Upon close inspection one sees the surface is composed of metal shavings. Shekari grinds shell casings with a grinder before applying the metal to his drawings. Erykah Townsend uses modge podge
