#FirstFriday: December Exhibitions We Love!December 5, 2019
Highlighting exhibitions that feature the work of WSW artists, we share the shows near and far that make up our monthly must-see list.
Join us on December 7th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the idea garden for the opening of Rhyme/Repeat! This exhibition showcases the work of local high school students who came to our studios as part of our Art-in-Education program. With history as a thematic guide, students used various printmaking and papermaking techniques to create a body of work that explores themes of narrative, biography, and repetition. RSVP on Facebook here!
