The Lightest Gesture

April 13 through June 17, 2018
An exhibition featuring works by Wilma Fiori, Adam Fowler, Matthew Larson, Edda Renouf, and Joshua Ware. "The Lightest Gesture presents five artists working in distinctly different media whose common voice is revealed in the unknown space between the physical and the psychological. Through material, process and repetition, each artist has developed a private language uniquely personal to their practice. For each, the interaction between material and the creative process produces an emotional dynamic similar to the complex relationships we form throughout our lives."
