Join us for the opening reception of REFLECT, an art exhibition of the Luna Project. The Luna Project, a collection of women artists, invites you to reflect with them.
The sky reflected in a river’s ripples, one’s face in an angled window or the mirror of a pond: reflection is a conversation between world and image. Which is real? We call upon inner reflection, the interplay of self and soul, as we celebrate the world that reflects us.
The exhibit will be in the gallery through December 28th.
2:00pm – 10:30pm

In this class we will work with our chosen partner, spouse, child, or friend, to create monotypes – a popular contemporary printmaking process. Prints are made by drawing or painting on a lexann plate (a stronger version of plexi-glass) and then transferred onto a sheet of paper. Instructors: Alice Webb and Ruth Cohen, artists featured in the Luna Project’s REFLECT exhibit.
