Into the outer reaches of a more golden land: the paintings of Connie Fox and featuring sculpture by William King
September 2 – December 6
Opening reception: September 2, 4-6 p.m.
This exhibition presents the artistic development and evolution of Connie Fox within the context of 20th century avant-garde, and her continued work and legacy in the 21st century. Also included in the exhibition is the sculptor William King, her partner of 33 years. Both were established in their own right when they met and subsequently, they did not really talk about their work. Their art has been exhibited together, within context, just one previous time.

Geometric Aljamia: a Cultural Transliteration
January 21 – April 10
Opening reception: January 21, 4-6 p.m.
By addressing the fundamental geometry embedded in two-dimensional art, this exhibition acknowledges hybrid connections between Europe, the Mediterranean basin, and the Middle East. In the past, aljamia played a significant role in preserving Islam and the Arabic language in the West. By understanding the visual arts as a transliteration of one form of thinking to another, this exhibition revisits the ongoing impact of Islamic art, science, and philosophy throughout the world today. The exhibition of paper cut installations by artists from the U.S., Canada, Dubai, and Afghanistan examines an extended cross-cultural integration of the arts into life.
